I’m a climate journalist and a fiction writer. I live in Oregon with my partner and two kids. I’ve written about climate change for The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and more. In 2021, I coined the term “Climate Shadow” to describe an individual’s potential impact on climate change. My fiction has appeared in Bellevue Literary Review, Idaho Review, New Orleans Review, Carve Magazine, Citron Review, and Alaska Quarterly Review. My debut novel, TILT, is forthcoming from Simon & Schuster in spring 2025. You can get more info here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Tilt/Emma-Pattee/9781668055472
