Greetings and salutations. My name is Emily Rose and I like sarcasm. I'm a nearly-20-year-old college student creating my own major, working title Children's Literature, to write and illustrate children's books. My favorite illustrator is Jan Brett and author is either Mark Twain, J.R.R. Tolkien, Lewis Carroll, or William Shakespeare, though I realize that only Mark Twain and Lewis Carroll have produced remotely child-friendly literature. I also love ee cummings, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Edgar Allan Poe. Reading, writing, and art are huge parts of my life.


My sister: Next time we come here, I'm totally bring a fanny pack. They're useful and stylish.

Me: ...Well, they're useful.

My mom: They're coming back into style now.

Me: Really?

My mom: No.

A Letter to Lauren
"Your arms were skinny, That kind of skinny where a person's elbows Are like burls on a branch And the there are bumps on their wrists Where the bones poke out." I can finally forgive the ones who bullied me, and for those who have been bullied, do not lose hope.

One-Hundred and Forty-One Colors
"Twinkling turquoise, plum violet, tangerine./Grass green and tickle-me-pink./Paper peeling, broken soldiers on coloring book fields./Wax rainbows shatter on the floor./Sweep up fragments of life and set them in a row./Playing pickup sticks with light." Of crayons and childhood.
