Hi! I’m Emma, and I’m a member of the class of 2023 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s hard to say when writing officially became my focus, but it definitely stems from filmmaking. I’m a member of Generation Next with the Santa Fe New Mexican, and have written several pieces for the National Women’s History Museum in Washington, D.C. My writing has also been featured in Heroica, The Ibis, The Decameron Project, The Spectre Review, and more. My films have screened in New York and New Mexico, although one is scheduled for a June 2022 festival in Portugal. I realized recently that a lot of my work has subconsciously been about recovery, queerness, and being a bad driver. It gives me a lot of anxiety to commit to what I love, but it also gets more and more worth it.
