Emma Garland is known mainly for her work at VICE UK, where she writes about pop culture, mental health and sexuality.
Born in south Wales, Emma graduated from Bath Spa University in 2010 with a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing. After that, she went on to complete a MA in International Journalism at Cardiff University, graduating with distinction. In 2016, she was nominated as Culture Writer of the Year at the Words by Women Awards, which she gracelessly lost. Her greatest career highlight came in 2017, when Jay Kay from Jamiroquai left her a voicemail saying that her review of their comeback tour – in which she described him fondly as “a guy from Stratford” – made him “laugh”.
Emma’s work has appeared in The Guardian, Glamour, The Debrief and Pitchfork, among other publications. She is currently Associate Editor at VICE UK.
