E. Kristin Anderson, Nee Emily Morse (Google that, I dare you), grew up in the suburban town of Westbrook, Maine. At Connecticut College in the lovely town of New London, Emily was Editor-In-Chief as well as defaulted-to layout editor and a music and pop culture columnist for The College Voice, which is now a zillion times better than it was when she was there. She has a fancy diploma that says “B.A. in Classics,” which makes her sound smart but has not helped her get any jobs in Ancient Rome.
As a grown-up (sort of), she has held the following jobs: post office aide, track coach, college campus tour guide, freelance writer, The New Yorker’s lowest-on-the-totem-poll (if well-loved) Editorial Production Associate, volunteer copy editor for Mimesis Poetry (one issue, as Brit grammar made her nutty), insurance agency assistant-y girl, and her favorite, bookseller. Currently living in Austin, Texas, Emily has learned to say things like “y’all” and “might should,” and has made lots of awesome friends, especially at the Austin chapter of SCBWI.
As a poet Ms. Anderson has been published worldwide in around two dozen literary journals from the recent start-up Mimesis (where her digital chapbook In Travel was a runner up in their 2008 contest) and the indie-queen Fuselit, to the more prestigious Cimarron Review. As a Photographer, Ms. Anderson has no credentials whatsoever. But she likes to make art. Her portfolio is here. She is in the process of querying her first young adult novel
