I’m Elizabeth Yalkut. I’m a twentysomething (left ambiguous only because I’ll never remember to change it) writer in New York City. I spend just as much time on the subway as you’d expect, drink more tea than you’d think, and eat less sushi than I’d like to.

My Twitter account is @elizabethyalkut.

The theme being used as of February 2010 is a tweaked version of Oulipo.
