Amy Foxworthy

Writer, Editor, and Content Creator

My name is Amy. I am a freelance writer, blogger, ghostwriter, editor and social media enthusiast.

Some of my experience includes ghostwriting for government officials, drafting and disseminating press releases, constituent correspondence, technical writing, legal writing, political satire, humor, political activism/opinion blogging, social media management, entertainment journalism and interviews.                     

About Me

In love with writing since first learning how to hold a pencil, I've always known that was what I was here to do. The art of crafty word selection has always intrigued me, and I am particularly interested in issues of social, political and cultural subject matter, but have love and appreciation for all types of writing.

I’m a marketing copywriter and freelance writer, and my former day job was writing for members of my state's legislative body. In the past, I have served as Public Information Officer for a governmental agency, served on an in-house technical communications team, and will work with a select number of clients on a freelance or contract basis.

I have returned to school to study Journalism at Indiana University – Purdue University, Indianapolis and have previously worked in corporate marketing for law firms, in-house communications for an office of 100 employees, and handled non-profit communication for a trade organization.

Some of my hobbies include reading about, listening to, playing and creating music, watching documentaries, collecting Wonder Woman and Beatles paraphernalia, learning about philosophy, political science, public affairs, pop culture, travel, sports, space, activism and other cultures.

A valued skill that I have is the ability to explain otherwise complicated issues and making them understandable to the lay person.
