Who is Emily Joy?

Emily Joy is a spoken word poet and Midwest native currently residing in Nashville, TN.

She now makes her living as a freelance writer, traveling poet and full-time cat mom to a tiny ball of fur named Clive Staples Lewis. Emily is passionate about challenging the status quo of the universe through art and empowering people, especially women, to pursue justice, speak their truths and ask hard questions.
