Emily Urquhart

Emily Urquhart is a writer and folklorist. She has a doctorate in folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland and undergraduate degrees in journalism and art history. Her writing has appeared in AZURE, CBC.ca, FLARE and The Walrus and in the anthologies Stories from the Ice Storm, The First Man in my Life, and Time Now for the Vinyl Café Story Exchange. In 2014 she won a National Magazine Award for an article published in The Walrus about folklore and human differences, inspired by her daughter who has albinism. It has since been expanded into a book which is part memoir, part travelogue and part cultural critique.
