Emma Dai'an Wright is the founder of The Emma Press, and works on all the books herself, from commissioning, editing, typesetting, illustrating, marketing and sales. She isn't the author of any books - this bit is just appearing under every book until the website is updated!


The poems in The Stack of Owls is Getting Higher are set in Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas and the poet’s native Belfast, featuring speakers who drive from place to place and capturing the in-between states in which so much of experience is actually lived.

Precise and strange images coalesce into physical and interior landscapes. Alternately surreal and direct, and always joyously inventive, Watson offers a clear and unsettling vision of what is and isn’t there.
