She also works with novelist Ann-Helén Laestadius, journalist Simon Parkin, and editor-in-chief of Taco Bell Quarterly M. M. Carrigan. Emily is looking to acquire voice-driven literary fiction, memoir, cultural criticism, narrative nonfiction, and poetry that “speak into the silence” (Carmen Maria Machado) of the existing canon. Before working in publishing, Emily taught writing in a Mississippi prison and English in a Basque ikastola. She assists Colin Harrison and works on select projects with Kara Watson
