AMY ABRAMS had a 10-year executive publishing career in New York City at Art & Antiques magazine and in Washington, DC, as Associate Publisher of Museum & Arts Washington magazine, before publishing over 200 stories in magazines and newspapers as a freelance arts writer including Art in America, The Wall Street Journal, Village Voice Media and National Public Radio’s magazine. During a stint in Scottsdale, Arizona, she contributed stories to national and regional publications including Southwest Art, Native Peoples and Arizona Highways; covered the arts for Scottsdale Tribune newspaper; and had a monthly column in a national newspaper. A sought-after university and museum speaker, she lectured about magazine writing to students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. Following her newfound passion—fiction writing, her short stories have appeared in Denver Quarterly and Hobart. Currently, she is co-fiction editor of Delmarva Review—a literary journal. Her debut novel, The Cage and The Key, was released this year. Her non-fiction book, a 200-page coffee table book about an acclaimed Pop artist, Schenck in the 21st Century: The Myth of the Hero and The Truth of America, also was published this year.
