My name is Emily and this is my fourth year writing for the YIS Magazine. I joined the magazine becuase I enjoy trying out different styles and genres of writing. I am most experienced with creative writing, however, I also enjoy writing about current events. While in this group, I hope to improve my writing skills, and try out new genres of writing that I have not worked with before.
The Abyss of Fire – A short creative/historical non-fiction piece about the 1923 Japan earthquake that devastated the cities of Tokyo and Yokohama.
4,442 Kilometers Away – A poem about my recent trip to Cambodia.
Bicycle – A poem about hope, ambition and aging
Every Fall – A poem about the changing seasons
