Winner: Artist's Choice Ekphrastic Challenge

“I loved this poem because it talks so beautifully about voice and its various contradictions, language and translations and everything that gets lost in between. There are several memorable lines in this poem, but my favourite was its end: ‘I feel like a woman’s words in a man’s book. There, but in his voice.’ I think that these lines themselves encapsulate the whole painting.”

Neena Sethia, artist of Rattle's May 2021 Ekphrastic Challenge, for 'Gods, monsters, and complex PTSD'.

Shortlisted: Beyond Writing Inspirational Women 2019

"This piece by Elizabeth Train-Brown was shortlisted in Round I: Inspirational Women, chronicling the Crucifixion as told through Mary’s story. The competition’s judge, Jean Rafferty of Dove Tales, described the piece as direct and touching, compelling enough to move even non-believers.

"Her second, shorter poem, We’re the ones they fear in the dark, could just as easily have sat on our shortlist."
