Emma Barnes

Emma Barnes was born in Christchurch in 1980. She studied English at the University of Canterbury and then taught in Japan for a few years, interrupted by a couple of years in Palmerston North. Now she finds herself living happily in Wellington in a house that was once a post office, with a partner, feline companions and a growing collection of Crown Lynn pottery. She is part way through the third edition of her lit magazine Enamel, to be released later this year, and is putting the finishing touches on a what may eventually become a book.
