About

Photography for Social Media and Marketing | www.amandatipton.comI’m a North Carolina native who lives in Golden, Colorado. My first book  White Lung was released from Saturnalia Books on October 15,  2021.

I have over 20 years of experience teaching and working with writers ages eight to adult. I’m currently  the Young Writers Program co-director for Lighthouse Writers Workshop.

I received an MFA from the University of Maryland in 2009, where I was a winner of both the Academy of American Poetry student prize and the AWP Intro to Journals contest. Before that, I taught creative writing and literature in middle school, high school, and college classrooms in Maryland, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

My poetry has been published in B O D Y, Copper Nickel, Colorado Review, Harvard Review, Mid-American Review, Slice, storySouth, THRUSH, and elsewhere.
