Emily Morrison

Emily Morrison spent her childhood immersed in reading, feeling most at home in the world of poetry. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in English and completing her law and business degrees at Tulane University, she detoured with a sixteen-year career on Wall Street. More recently, Morrison founded Elysian, an artisanal lifestyle brand selling handmade pieces from Istanbul, Turkey, as featured in Forbes, the New York Times Style Magazine, Town & Country, Veranda, and Harper’s Bazaar. Her imagination cultivated, she wrote lyrical poetry to inspire emotions that can create change. This is her first published work, and she looks forward to the upcoming publication of her collection of children’s poems. A native South Carolinian, Morrison lived in New Orleans for over twenty years and recently moved to Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, with her husband, Stirling; ten-year-old triplets, Stirling, Logan, and Rhett; and their dog, Biscuit.
