about me

Emily C. Skaftun is an editor with 10+ years experience sourcing, creating, and developing content and managing teams of writers, artists, and editors.

As Editor in Chief of The Norwegian American from January 2014 to September 2019, she was responsible for all aspects of the digital and print versions of that paper, including design, layout, and marketing. Hun snakker litt norsk, og liker også å oversette fra norsk til engelsk.

Emily is a graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and holds an MFA in Creative Writing. As a fiction writer, she tends toward the strange. Her work has been published in Strange Horizons, Asimov’s, Clarkesworld, and Daily Science Fiction.

If Emily could zap things out of this dimension there’d be a lot less traffic, chewing gum, and rain. Despite the inability (yet!) to vanquish rain, Emily lives just north of Seattle with her husband the mad scientist and two mini-tigers. She dabbles in roller derby and other absurd opportunities as they come along, while writing about fate, flying tigers, and strange fish.
