Hello. My name is Amy.

I’m a freelance writer and performer from London. The things I perform are mostly poems. I also write stories, some of which I perform, and ad copy, which someone else performs.

My first pamphlet of poems, Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads, will be out in the new year with Flipped Eye Publishing.

I’ve had work published in Poetry Review, Popshot, Rising, Poems in Which, South Bank Poetry and Rhyming Thunder: The Alternative Book of Young Poets.

Since July 2012, I’ve run and hosted a London poetry night called Sage & Time with Anna Le and Richard Marsh.

I’ve performed at Latitude, Secret Garden Party, the Edinburgh Fringe, Ronnie Scott’s, Bang Said the Gun and in hundreds of pubs, bars and fields across the UK. And in a two-man tent.

I’ve been London Bridge tube station’s Poet in Residence, opened for Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, hosted a poetry game show in Tooting Market, performed in a balaclava as Anti-Slam alter-ego Love Terrorist, written and staged collaborative poems with Dirty Hands poetry collective, won Best Slam Poet of 2011 at the Farrago Zoo Awards, received commendations from Magma and South Bank Poetry and been on the radio a few times.

I like lists, noodle soup, existentialism, hugs and swearing.
