Amy Whipple would prefer to write this bio in the first person, but apparently that’s still not a thing that people do. She is a Pittsburgh-based nonfiction writer, a church secretary, and parent of the magnificent Wee Dude. She watches a lot of TV, eats ice cream every night, and is working on a book about advocacy, community, and twenty-first-century togetherness. She holds an MFA in nonfiction writing from the University of Pittsburgh as well as an MA and a BA in English from Longwood University. Her work can be found in Pittsburgh Magazine, VICE, and The Guardian, among others. She is the nonfiction co-editor of K’in and has previously held editorial positions at Hot Metal Bridge and The Dos Passos Review. She does not know what to make of how many sets of three fit into 140 words.
