I abandoned my old blog a couple years ago. I wanted a fresh start but I didn’t know how to get it. I am about to begin my fourth and final year as a Professional Writing student at York University. Throughout my time at York I have learned that community is the most important part of writing. The connections I’ve made with professors and fellow artists have changed my writing life in ways I would’ve never expected.
This is why I decided to start up a new website! I want to share my words and engage more with the writing community. I am currently working as Senior Poetry Editor for Existere journal, contributing stories to Money After Graduation, and working on a poetry manuscript. I am happy to be working on things that challenge me and also allow me to write about things that are important to me like mental health and the LGBTQ+ community. But, I wanted to share more of my personal, creative writing!
To keep it short, my name is Emily and I am a poet. If you’re reading this, thank you! I’ll be using this site to share poetry, prose, and blogs, and I appreciate you taking the time to read them!
