Dr Emma Filtness is Lecturer in Creative Writing (Academic Education). She is primarily a poet, but also works in prose fiction and narrative non-fiction, with a penchant for hybrid and experimental forms. Broadly her writing explores themes of heritage, migration and work, as well as gender, nature and place. Her current practice involves an exploration of found and visual poetics, including zine-making and mixed-media composition.
