Emily Saso (say-so) writes novels, screenplays and copy.
Her debut novel, The Weather Inside, came out in 2016 to excellent reviews. She loves television and movies as much as she loves books, and is currently writing two TV pilots and a feature. She’s a proud alum of the Women on Screen screenwriting incubator, The Summer Institute of Film and TV, and the Comedy Girl stand-up training program.
Emily earned her master’s in international security studies from York University—a degree that comes in handy when she watches Homeland. And yes, Emily is married, sorry. But maybe you could be friends?
Emily’s voice, dark humour and style have been compared to Aimee Bender and Margaret Atwood. She was awarded an Ontario Arts Council Writers’ Reserve grant and made the longlist for the CBC Short Story contest. From Ottawa originally, she’s lived in Toronto since 1999. She is a dog person, loves the smell of underground parking lots, tweets from @EmilySaso1 and blogs about the writing life at egoburn.blogspot.com.
