Emily Lackey

Northampton, MA

Emily Lackey is a literary artist working in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. She is interested in how we come to believe stories, how they give birth to who we believe ourselves to be, and how slippery they sometimes are, given to misunderstanding, flights of passion, and frequent changes. At Bemis, she will continue a collection of linked stories that revolve around one moment of trauma in the lives of six women–generations of grandmothers, mothers, daughters, and sisters. It’s an examination of memory and family and how one moment can spin infinitely outward.
