Emma Hogan is a writer and editor.

Since late 2012 I have worked at The Economist: currently I am the Asia Editor.

As a reporter I have travelled to over two dozen countries, writing about South-East Asia, Europe and Britain. I also write features, including an 1843 cover story on microdosing LSD, how Ireland became so socially liberal, and on the benefits of cold-water swimming.

I have also written for other publications including the London Review of Books, Times Literary Supplement, Financial Times and The Times. In 2012 I was one of the judges for the Forward Prize for poetry.

I graduated from Cambridge University in 2010 with a double first in English Literature and completed an MPhil the following year. My undergraduate dissertation was turned into a piece in the Times Literary Supplement about discovering an early draft of a poem by Frank O’Hara.

A small selection of my articles can be found on the journalism page of this website.
