Libby Emmons grew up in every major metrop on the northeast coast, and has never lived anywhere else. When she got caught writing obscene stories in jr. high, her parents told her the idle mind is the devil’s playground, and forbade her from writing. She knew then that writing was all she wanted to do. She is an award-winning playwright, has published with Quillette, Smith & Krause, Applause Books, New York Theatre Review, Narratively, The Federalist, Spill, Liberty Island, was featured on the podcast Cosmic Tortoise, and blogs semi-regularly at li88yinc.com. She is co-founder of Blue Box Productions (on hiatus since 2016), the Sticky series & newly formed Puss Collective in residence at Access Theater for the 2018-19 season. BA Sarah Lawrence College, MFA Columbia University. Libby lives half in Brooklyn, and half in stories. @li88yinc
