Anthony Emerson lives and writes at the edge of the North Maine Woods. Born and raised in Southern and Eastern Maine, he recently moved back to his mother’s hometown in the Katahdin region where the rivers and mountains of the north country have become a focus of his writing. As a nature writer, he seeks to examine the connections between personal and community identity with natural and man-made landscapes and concepts. His essays, short fiction, and poetry have been published in Appalachia Journal, The Dillydoun Review, Flora Fiction, Northern New England Review, Tiny Seed Journal, and Visitant. Outside of writing, he enjoys hiking, camping, the Grateful Dead, bourbon, and kayaking with his grandmother. In addition to his essays on nature and place, his current works in progress include a short novel about a turn of the century lumberjack, a hybrid chapbook titled A Cloud Factory, and a series of humorous micro-essays about being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of twenty-nine.
