Emily Malloy

A copywriter and copyeditor in Mount Holyoke’s Office of Communications and Marketing, Emily Malloy of South Deerfield, Massachusetts, has a thing for words. Ditto for reading, punning and the collecting of pencils and notebooks. She aspires to be a language gawdess — as in, “My gawd, that’s good!” — as she helps Mount Holyoke students share their experiences, stories and achievements with the world at large through The Gates blog. One of Malloy’s favorite quotes is by Jack Kerouac: “[...] the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’”
