Emanuel has authored four books of poetry—Hotel Fiesta (University of Georgia Press, 1984); The Dig (University of Illinois Press, 1992) a 1992 National Poetry Series winner; Then, Suddenly (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1999); and Noose and Hook (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2010). She has been a poetry editor for the annual Pushcart Prize Anthology, a member of the literature panel for the National Endowment for the Arts, and a judge for the National Book Awards.
