Emily Ellison is a third year MFA poet at Texas State University, where she also works as an Teaching Assistant for their English faculty. Her work has appeared in Southword, After the Pause, and Haiku Journal, and is upcoming in several places. Emily lives in San Marcos, Texas with four cats and an abundance of plants (withering at the moment). She wonders why, despite her agricultural roots, only her imagination blooms.
What she’s looking for: Emily’s mission to investigate the human condition centers around curiosity. How can we interrogate our unknowns? How might we better understand one another? What happens if we really speak to one another?
