Emily Weaver

Emily is a NYC-based freelance entertainment and lifestyle writer. When she isn’t writing about her Trader Joe’s and Bath & Body Works cult-like obsession for Scary Mommy, she’s managing Scary Mommy Book Club. As a contributing book club editor, she creates *hilarious* social media content, bookish stories, and original interviews on the site.

A full-time freelancer from the get-go, Emily started her career in 2019 as a contributor for POPSUGAR, writing for the company's home, living, family, entertainment, and commerce verticals. In 2020, she was recognized in the first-annual POPSUGAR Voices Awards for her reliability, strong copy, and attention to detail. Since then, she has gone on to write for PEOPLE, Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, Byrdie, HelloGiggles, Motherly, and more. She holds Bachelor degrees in Journalism & Mass Communications and Sports Studies from the University of Iowa. Go Hawks!

Outside of work, Emily’s interests include reading (duh), travel, and reality TV. She’s currently on the hunt to find the best iced coffee in Manhattan. Follow Emily on Instagram and LinkedIn.
