Emily Blair lives in Brooklyn. She draws, writes poems and creates artists’ books. These latter are in a number of university library collections and have been exhibited at Western Exhibitions Gallery in Chicago. Her poetry has appeared in the Mississippi Review, WSQ, and Cura. Emily also makes comics now and then. In 2006, she received a Xeric Foundation Self-Publishing Grant for her comic Living Statues, as well as a NYFA Fiction Fellowship. In 2009-2010, she was a Stein Family Scholar at the Center for Book Arts in NYC. In 2010, Booklyn published her chapbook Idaville, an illustrated short story, yours for only $5. Since 1994, she has been part of Next Question, a collaborative art group whose projects incorporate interviews. For fun and profit, Emily works on websites and print projects. Before their cancellation, she used to watch Guiding Light and As the World Turns, but she isn’t ready to love the Bold and the Beautiful.
