Hello! My name is Emily Corwin and here are some things to know about me!
- I love lists. Also bread, coffee, dresses, and lipstick.
- I live in Bloomington, Indiana with my partner, Joe and my cat, Soup.
- I am currently completing an MFA in poetry at IU Bloomington!
- As someone with chronic conditions (hip impingement, anxiety disorder, various joint issues), I write a lot about physical and psychic pain, and about fairy tales, the girly and the grotesque, longing, and magic.
- Next spring, my first full-length collection, tenderling is forthcoming from Stalking Horse Press. I have two chapbooks, darkling (Platypus Press) and My Tall Handsome (Brain Mill Press) which came out in 2016.
- I am a Midwestern girl through and through—I grew up in Michigan, went to school in Ohio, and now, I am in Indiana!
- My favorite color is pink, my favorite musician is Grouper, and my favorite flowers are dahlias.
- My current poetry inspirations: Diane Seuss, Liz Bowen, Laura Theobald, Jennifer Givhan, Vievee Francis, Kiki Petrosino, and Stacy Gnall.
- My ancestor, Jonathan Corwin, was a judge in the Salem Witch Trials.
- I just finished my year as Poetry Editor of Indiana Review, and I am looking forward to continuing my editorial work at Sundress!
