Emily Sun's ancestors lived in a village in the south of China. Her visit to Beijing to get in touch with her ethnic origins is recorded in her essay 'Oxygen'. Raised and educated in Perth, Western Australia, Sun later trained as a teacher.

'The poems in Emily Sun's debut collection Vociferate | 詠 were inspired by diasporic Asian feminist writers. Like these writers, Emily resists Orientalist tropes as she explores the idea of national and transnational identities, relfects upon the concept of bleonging, and questions what it means to be Asian-Australian.'
