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.)

It all began as a rookie reporter for The Canberra Times—the leading newspaper in Australia's capital city (it's not Sydney!) A decade later, I covered the Australian election for MSN News. Now, I write about business and culture for international publications. Here are a very few..
