Emily is a 4th year poet in the MFA program at the University of Arkansas. Originally from Danville, Illinois, she now lives in Fayetteville with two spoiled kitties named Arwen and Frodo. Her interests include reading, eating, and playing video games. This will be her second year working with WITS. She believes creativity is the key to shaping a brighter future, and the more knowledge we can spread about the freedom of poetry, the better off we all will be.
