Elizabeth Bryer is a writer and translator.

From Here On, Monsters, joint winner of the 2020 Norma K Hemming Award, is her first novel.

The novels she has translated from Spanish include Aleksandra Lun’s The Palimpsests, awarded a PEN/Heim Translation fund grant in 2017; Claudia Salazar Jiménez’s Americas Prize–winning Blood of the Dawn, described in the New York Times Book Review as a ‘brave, breviloquent debut novel’; and José Luis de Juan’s Napoleon’s Beekeeper. María José Ferrada’s How to Order the Universe is forthcoming from Tin House Books.

Her writing is represented by Melanie Ostell Literary.

She divides her time between Birraranga/Melbourne on unceded sovereign Wurundjeri land, and Arequipa, Peru. You can get in touch by emailing ekbryer@gmail.com.
