Amy is a native of Tappahannock, Virginia, a small-town centrally located in the Middle Peninsula. Heavily influenced by the cultural conflict of living two hours from Washington, DC, and growing up in a rural community, Amy pursued academic studies that allowed her insights into the intersection of identity and politics, themes that run throughout her creative work.

A current Pensacola, Florida, transplant, she is a writer, editor, and educator who focuses her creative work on capturing stories that go largely unheard. An advocate for rural education, food accessibility, and marginalized populations, Amy can be reached at amy.woodland@gmail.com.
