Emma authors blog content for the Grassic Gibbon Center.  In 2019, she relocated from Tucson, Arizona to Arbuthnott to conduct research as a Bilinski Fellow.  She holds a BA, MLitt, and MA in English and Scottish Literature, and an MFA in Creative Writing. She is currently finishing her PhD in Literature with a focus on time, language, and magic in the works of Lewis Grassic Gibbon and Sir Walter Scott. Her interest in Gibbon, specifically, began when she read the Scots Quair and discovered that Gibbon had somehow managed to articulate all of her own secret feelings and thoughts that had previously eluded language. She taught Sunset Song to college freshman at the University of Arizona  for several years and enjoyed watching new readers discover the clay fields of Blawearie and the plaintive cry of the peewits.
