Amie

Amie’s wanderlust for words has led her through a creative writing degree at Falmouth University, seen her raising funds and making noise for ‘Owdyado Theatre and had her creating eye-catching newsletters for Amnesty International’s Women’s Action Network.

Following an internship with the Stranger Collective team, she now takes care of the day-to-day running of the office alongside putting her writerly wiles to a wide range of projects; from developing creative campaign concepts and delivering training, to crafting compelling copy for a smorgasbord of clients.

As words spill out throughout her life there’s always a creative project waiting in the wings; currently she’s got her head stuck in the world of children’s writing and is working on producing her first book.
