Emily McLaughry has no educational or professional accolades in creative writing. Bloodroot Literary Magazine is her debut as a published poet, and she is humbled by the opportunity to showcase her transcribed internal babble. Emily often expresses her poetry in spoken word or through song, and the stories primarily depict elements of her personal life or current social and political climates. By day, Emily is a real estate agent in Vermont and New Hampshire and a real estate photographer and videographer. She garners inspiration from her simple life in a rustic cabin in the woods and indulges in many creative outlets including jewelry making, pottery and photography.
