Emily C. Skaftun is a graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and holds an MFA in Creative Writing. In other words, she’s primarily interested in words.

If Emily could zap things out of this dimension there’d be a lot less traffic, chewing gum, and rain. Despite the inability (yet!) to vanquish rain, Emily lives just north of Seattle with her husband the mad scientist and a cat who thinks he’s a tiger. She dabbles in roller derby and other absurd opportunities as they come along, while writing about fate, flying tigers, and strange fish.

Emily has been the Editor in Chief of The Norwegian American since 2014. Hun lærer seg norsk, men sakte. Og nå hun finnes det vanskelig å skrive skjønnlitteratur. Eller på engelsk. 🙂
