BIO

Emily Blair is an Appalachian poet, blue-collar scholar, and community college professor living in North Carolina. Originally from Fort Chiswell, Virginia, she called Blacksburg, VA, and Louisville, KY, home before settling in the Tarheel State (for now).

Themes for her creative writing include queer identity, Appalachia, body horror, and abstract renderings of emotions and relationships. 

Her academic work has largely focused on queer Appalachia and Southern literature, analyses of bodies in space, and Appalachian language.
