By first building a career as a fiction writer and literary magazine editor before pivoting into teaching, Emily brings real-world expertise, formal acumen, and creative ambition into the creative writing classroom. Her teaching encompasses  an exploration of contemporary modes and styles, establishing an empathetic and rigorous discourse among students, and building competency with revision and editorial practices.

In recent years Emily has taught creative writing workshops to undergraduates (Drew University) and in community based-settings (92NY and Center for Fiction). She also has presented craft lectures, manuscript consultations, and editorial Q&As at dozens of universities, literary conferences, and community-based courses.

Emily spent the winter 2022-23 term at the University of Leipzig as the Picador Professor. More info here.
