Emily Van Duyne writes about Sylvia Plath, feminism, politics, sex, motherhood, and sometimes all of those things in a single essay. She lives near Atlantic City, NJ, with her partner, Vincent, their two children, Hank and Stella, and their four cats, who shall remain nameless. She is at work on two books, Loving Sylvia Plath, a memoir, and The Precariat & The Professor, an anthology about precarious labor in higher education. She is assistant professor of writing at Stockton University, where she also teaches women and gender studies.
