Emily is Tamarack’s on-demand copyeditor. She teaches writing at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, VT, and works as a book editor at Wind Ridge Publishing in nearby Shelburne. She helps to run local writers’ workshops and young writers’ summer camps at Wind Ridge’s Writers’ Barn. Before moving to northern Vermont in 2009, Emily spent three years as literary assistant to novelist John Irving, who passed on to her his deep love of semi-colons and strong aversion to typos. In her free time, Emily helps husband Pete take care of Tamarack’s office dog, Willy.
