About Me


I'm Emery.

I write from beautiful Boise, Idaho. I have an MA in English, Rhetoric & Composition from Boise State University. I am the Director of Content Strategy at a small but eclectic business, and I work as a freelance writer, copyeditor, and consultant. The coolest thing I get to do is act as assistant editor of Memoir Mixtapes.

I blog about writing misadventures, abstractions, books, and scenes from my little life. My published works and works-in-progress are in the genres of creative nonfiction and (mostly flash) fiction. I'm primarily interested in small stuff, like exploring our interiority, exploiting the ferocity of the human condition, and leaping into the void. 

Thanks for visiting.
