Emily Golden is obsessed with the power of story. For the last decade she’s helped activists, business owners, election candidates, and writers find and hone their voices so they resound with those they need to reach.

As a Book Coach and Developmental Editor with Golden May Editing, she helps writers see the potential in their stories, as well as the path to attaining it. Her favorite stories to work on include complex characters with grey motivations and worlds vivid enough to lose herself in. In 2018-19 she worked as an Editorial Intern at P.S. Literary Agency.

Originally, from the coast of Maine, Golden is now posted in the mountains of Colorado. She’s happiest outside and most weekends you’ll find her camping in the back of her Tacoma—probably writing her epic fantasy, or with a book in hand.
