Emma is also inspired by creative approaches to engagement, using creative writing interests to develop innovative ways of communicating public health research messages.  In collaboration with Lancaster University’s graphic novel and comic network in 2018, she was involved in projects using art and comics as a method of communicating lay narratives of health inequalities.  One project went on to win a North West Coast Innovation Award




In 2019, her poem (The MOT) about women's experiences of cervical screening was selected for inclusion in the 2019 Hippocrates Poetry Prize Anthology.
