Emma Faesi Hudelson is a teaching fellow and PhD candidate studying literary nonfiction at the University of Cincinnati. She is an experienced editor and grant proposal writer. After completing her BA in English and MFA in Creative Writing from Butler University, Emma taught there as a full-time instructor in the English department. She currently teaches at the University of Cincinnati and works with students of all ages as a private tutor. Her editing credentials include books of poetry, dissertation chapters, and business and technical writing. As a grant proposal writer, she specializes in federal and environmental grants, and her successful proposals have earned more than $3.6 million for local governments and nonprofits.
Emma writes about addiction, mental illness, recovery, and the mind-body connection. Horses, too. Her creative work appears or is coming soon in BUST, The Rumpus, Foglifter, The Chattahoochee Review, Thin Air Magazine, The Nasiona, and other publications. Her essays have been selected as finalists in the 2017 International Literary Awards and Creative Nonfiction's Spring 2018 Contest. She is seeking representation for her memoir-in-essays, DISORDERED, a book about surviving a dual diagnosis of mood and substance abuse disorders.
She lives with two dogs, two cats, and one husband in a house by the woods along Indiana’s White River. Emma is sober and vegan, so no one invites her to dinner parties. Ever.
