My name is Amy Southerland. I’m a freelance writer and communications consultant based in Washington, DC. My experience is wide-ranging, but I especially enjoy working with nonprofits and small, community-based businesses.

I moved to DC in 2003 from my hometown of Kansas City. I have master’s degrees in English and journalism from the University of Kansas, and while working on my “unPhD” I taught college English for six years.

Non-writerly jobs I’ve had over the years that contribute to my worldview include: washing glassware in a biochemistry lab, greeting visitors at a natural history museum, selling children’s shoes, slinging spaghetti, and being the pack leader at a doggie daycare.
