Spotlight On Writers – Emma Wells

Spotlight On Writers

Emma Wells


  1. Where, do you hail from?
Suffolk in the United Kingdom.
  1. What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?

The coastal towns. I especially love Southwold and writing there when time affords me to do so. There’s something cleansing and stimulating about the sea air that enlivens my spirit.

  1. What turns you on creatively?

Normally a stimulus of some kind such as a piece of art, statue, still image of a person or place (sometimes both), historical records, etc. Social media posts take my interest if they link to a particular historical era, especially Victorian or Tudor – the more obscure and lesser-known information, the better, as a starting point for me to write.

  1. What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?

I love ‘enkindle’ and ‘tendrils’, of late. I have used ‘wispy’ and ‘chimera’ in both prose and poetic writings. If I had to pick one word, it will have to be tendrils as the connotations are endless: spidery fingers, tattered ribbons fluttering in the breeze; ghostly hands, etc.

Sentence: Tendrils of longing clinged to the wintery windowpane, hollow and lost.

  1. What is your pet peeve?

I hate obnoxious attitudes and gristle in sausage rolls! Rant over! 😜 My only other peeve is low-fat cheese – it’s nothing like full fat and makes me hangry (probably an over-exaggeration)!

  1. What defines Emma Wells?

I am kind, approachable and like to think of myself as loving. I think of others before myself and love treating close family and friends. I’m always thinking of a present project for someone!

Long walks, pub lunches, getting lost in new places, and finding cats to fuss are also up there!
