Emily has been writing her way back to her home on Prince Edward Island ever since she left. Since leaving she’s earned an MA in English Literature from the University of Guelph, an MS in Narrative Medicine from Columbia University, and is currently completing her MFA in Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia. When she’s not pursuing Master’s degrees, Emily is writing recovery narratives of people who have suffered. She is interested in the intersections of literature, mental health, and medicine and reads and writes about them frequently.
Her fiction and poetry have been recognized provincially and have appeared in Broken Pencil Magazine’s “Deathmatch,” Tendon, and Estuary Magazine. Her nonfiction has appeared in Studies in Canadian Literature, and she has been a selected playwright of Watermark Theatre’s Play Reading Series.
Emily is working on a novel about the paths through intergenerational trauma for a family tormented by addiction and gossiping neighbours.
