Independent writer, Travel journalist, essayist, Scent evangelist
As an award-winning reporter, travel writer and essayist, Emily Grosvenor has written about octogenarian farmers who mow labyrinths in the grass, the secrets of the Oregon State Hospital, a runway model-turned salumi stuffer, a toddler with an Oedipus complex, and what it is like to be a super sniffer living in the fragrant American West. Her passion for capturing place, for sketching scenes, for discovering people, and for always finding the meaning of being a stranger in a strange land, has led her to frequent work for publications like The Atlantic, Sunset, AAA Via, Portland Monthly, Salon.com and Publishers Weekly. An evangelist for the power of the sense of smell, she lives in McMinnville, OR, where she is writing a funny memoir about connecting to place through scent. She is founder of the Scent in Literature Project.
