Emma Pearse

Writer, editor, teacher, traveler

Emma is a writer, editor, researcher and content specialist living between NYC and Australia. She also teaches and is a creative consultant on book and digital media projects. Emma has published personal essays and written wellness, culture, and travel features for The New York Times, New York magazine, the Guardian, Elle, Smithsonian.com, Vogue, Spirituality & Health... and more. She is slowly at work on her second book. For her first book, which is in bookstores worldwide, Emma retraced the true story of an heroic Blue Heeler who, in 2010, survived in the Australian wild for six months after disappearing overboard from her family boat near the Great Barrier Reef. (Sophie: The Incredible True Story of the Castaway Dog even got a write up on Oprah. See "My Book" page.)

I offer consulting sessions for writers at all stages of the book, essay or article process. I can:

  • ghostwrite books and book proposals
  • help you navigate the unwieldy world of literary agents and publishers
  • help you pitch articles and essays to mainstream, literary and trade publications
  • guide you through the options of what sort of book you want to write and where it will fit in the market
  • strategize and curate your digital platform

I've edited self help books, helped translate academic books for a consumer market, and provided editing and writing guidance for literary and popular memoirs.

A Gentle Reminder: No writer needs do this alone.  (Well, plenty do...and often, they're miserable.)
