Emma Komlos-Hrobsky’s fiction and nonfiction have appeared in Guernica, Conjunctions, Tin House, Hunger Mountain, Bookforum, and The Story Collider. She serves as associate editor at Tin House magazine and Tin House Books, and as founder and director of the Tin House Craft Intensives, a series of writing classes held in the magazine’s Brooklyn offices. She holds an MFA from the New School, where she subsequently taught writing for six years and advised 12th Street, the much-lauded journal of writing and democracy from the Riggio Honors Program. She has also taught as a guest of Writers @ Work in Salt Lake City, Utah.
As a Plath scholar, Emma has been celebrated for her original work on Plath’s conception of religion, subjectivity, and poetic making. She is also the author and illustrator of Camp Tons-A-Yaks, an epistolary summer camp mail art project, now in its fifth year. She is at work on a short story collection set in the wild and liminal spaces of the American west and a novel. She hails from Boulder, Colorado, and lives, alas, in New York City.
