About Emily

Just who is this so-called “Emily?”

Well, that would be me! I, Emily Vollmer, am a young writer currently working towards a Bachelors of Science in Technical Communications. I hope to one day become a full-time writer and novelist, though that day is still a while coming. My favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction, though I’ll never turn down a good comedic autobiography.

My writing is character driven, and examines the strange ways people react to difficult situations. I truly believe that good writing can have a meaningful impact on the world, and hope to hone my skills so that I can one day make that impact. With that in mind, I work to normalize LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships through stories, and focus on strong—yet flawed—female leads. My current writing tastes tend towards horror and surrealist short stories.

I can be found holed away in my (very) tiny Connecticut apartment with my bunny Frankenstein and parakeet Nimoy, usually with a mug of French press coffee in hand and a laptop filled with half-written stories.

Here on the site you can find my blog, ongoing writing projects, and links to work published elsewhere. Feel free to say “hi” using the Contact page, you get bonus points if you can tell me about a cool literary mag I should check out.
