Hello. Thank you for visiting my website
I’m Emma Cummins, a Northern Irish writer based in Belfast.
I’ve written for a wide range of publications including The Guardian, The Quietus, Open Democracy, Aesthetica Magazine, Circa, Flash Art International and City journal. In 2021, I was shortlisted for Fish Publishing’s Short Memoir Prize.
If you like, you can browse a selected portfolio of my writing here.
I work as a manager and copywriter for the Guardian Bookshop. Before that, I was a full-time copywriter and blog editor for the Guardian’s learning programme, where I wrote about personal development and creative writing. Previous positions have included working with the British Council at the Venice Biennale, and the academic journal City, as coordinating editor.
I have a first-class MA in visual culture from Goldsmiths, and a BA in fine art and art history from Newcastle University. I’ve spoken at universities including UCL and Goldsmiths, art galleries such as The Royal Standard, and delivered creative writing tutorials for Guardian Masterclasses.
I’m open to commissions for journalism, creative writing and copywriting. If you’d like to get in touch, please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
