Emily Mayo – Jersey Shorts Prose Contest

Having always dreamed of being an author, Emily Mayo has enjoyed writing short stories for as long as she can remember.  And after getting involved with her school’s creative writing program at the beginning of her junior year, she quickly became enthralled with poetry as well.  In her free time, she works on a novel focused on accurate explanations for science fiction, enjoys playing the piano, and plays soccer.  She is also interested in the study of neuroscience, and has conducted scientific research both at school and at a pharmaceutical company.
