Emma Pfeiffer is a poet and essayist based in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to writing, she enjoys traveling, and her day job brings her to beautiful surroundings to help people understand and enjoy national parks. She wishes she had the geographic stability to adopt a few shelter cats.
What I remember: buying a ticket to Hebden Bridge on the train, certain that the conductor would judge me as another American Plath girl if I asked for Heptonstall. The tough climb uphill to the churchyard. The sweeping view across the moors on that bright summer’s day.
