Emily Mosley grew up in a small lakeside cabin in rural Georgia, but has spent the last six years in the gritty wonderland that is New Orleans. She has worked in the service industry since she was 15: at hotels, museums, nature resorts, holiday light shows, summer camp for rich people, and as a rideshare driver. She can often be found sneaking into strangers’ yards to smell their flowers and pet their cats. Emily is a mother to three surly but hilarious daughters. Her essays and poetry have been published by Weasel Press, Not Very Quiet, Sheila-Na-Gig, The Grief Diaries, Just Place, The Abstract Elephant Magazine, Lucky Jefferson, Georgia EMC Magazine, and in the book Psychedelic Trips for the Mind.
