Formerly the ad promo manager for academic and library marketing at Penguin Books, I work on various writing, publishing, gardening, fabric art projects and business interests in book selling and publishing. 

I’ve developed writing, research and editorial projects with many publishers, companies, and non-profits, including National Geographic Learning, Truepad, Great Books, Chicago Cultural Mile, and Industry magazine.

This is a portfolio site as well as a blog following my interest in relationships (vegetable-animal-mineral), yoga, health and sustainable living, and writing.

I am available for various word-putting-together activities, and as a teacher of yoga and meditation.

Quotes from clients:

“Emily’s culture pieces are always warm and slightly ahead of the curve. If you need someone to cover a breaking trend, or scope one out that is below the radar, she is a good choice.”

“Manages to straddle the line between lighthearted analysis and serious investigation, which ain’t an easy thing to do.”

“She has too many good ideas, which is a damn fine problem for an editor to be confronted with.”

“Wonderful, thoughtful, honest, it follows the best schema of personal essay from the specific to the general and the personal.”

“Very insightful and bravo for exploring the therapy via publishing route. Very impressed.”
