Former Associate Editor

Emma Jones is a lifelong New Yorker who has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her first “story” was dictated to her father at age three, and followed a tiger in her family washing machine.

Emma’s work is inspired by the multi-faceted experience of growing up in Washington Heights in a world of peers who’d never been above 125th Street. Her creative practice often features her fascination with New York public transit and the metaphors in everything from geography to anatomy. She is primarily a fiction writer but believes in the malleability of fiction to create experimental works.

In her spare time, she practices yoga and is working towards an RYT 200HR certification. You can find her at her day job as a customer service associate at the iconic Chinese-American retail emporium, Pearl River Mart. She is currently pursuing a B.A. in Literary Studies, Fiction at The New School, graduating in 2021. She graduated with honors from Horace Mann School in Bronx, New York in 2018.
