Emma Hogan is a writer and editor.

Since late 2012 she has worked at The Economist. As a staff correspondent she has written about South-East Asia, Europe and Britain. At present, she is Deputy Briefings Editor, editing long articles across the paper.

Alongside her reporting she also writes features, including an 1843 cover story on why Silicon Valley’s avant-garde are turning to microdosing LSD, how Ireland became so socially liberal, and on the benefits of cold-water swimming.

She also writes book reviews and cultural essays regularly for The Economist and other publications. In 2012 she was one of the judges for the Forward Prize for poetry. The year before that she wrote in the Times Literary Supplement about discovering an early draft of a poem by Frank O’Hara.

Emma graduated from Cambridge University in 2010 with a double first in English Literature and completed an MPhil the following year.

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