Emma Jean Hermacinski

Poetry Reader

Emma Jean Hermacinski is a seventeen-year-old writer from Zionsville, Indiana. She attends school in Wallingford, Connecticut, where she began her writing career by the campus's polluted creek, scribbling her poetry on a board she fished out of there. Nowadays, she writes on the higher floors of the Indianapolis Public Library, exploring themes of identity, belonging, and liminality by scratching words onto junior legal pads. Outside of poetry, emma enjoys crusading against capitalization, reading travelogues and spanish-language magical realism, and cuddling her cavapoo, Lola.
