Emerson published eight poetry collections through Louisiana State University Press's Southern Messenger Poets series: Pharaoh, Pharaoh (1997), Pinion: An Elegy (2002), Late Wife (2005), Figure Studies: Poems (2008), Secure the Shadow (2012), Impossible Bottle (2015), The Opposite House (2015) and Claude before Time and Space (2018). [5]

Three collections were published posthumously, The Opposite House (March 2015), Impossible Bottle (September 2015) and Claude before Time and Space (February 2018).[6]

In addition to her collections, Emerson's work has been included in such anthologies as Yellow Shoe Poets,[7][8] The Made Thing,[9][10] Strongly Spent: 50 Years of Shenandoah Poetry,[11] and Common Wealth: Contemporary Poets of Virginia.[12]

Emerson served as poetry editor for the Greensboro Review and a contributing editor for the literary magazine Shenandoah.[5][13] In 2002, Emerson was Guest Editor of Visions-International (published by Black Buzzard Press).[citation needed] On August 26, 2008, she was appointed Poet Laureate of Virginia, by then Governor Timothy M. Kaine[14] and served until 2010.[15] In 2008, she returned to Chatham Hall to serve as The Siragusa Foundation's Poet-in-Residence.[16]

She taught at several colleges including Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia and Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. She spent over a decade at the University of Mary Washington, in Fredericksburg, Virginia, as an English professor and the Arrington Distinguished Chair in Poetry.[17]

In 2013, Emerson joined the creative writing faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where she taught until her death in 2014 from colon cancer at age 57.[18][19]
