Amy's poem, "Pocketbook," from a compilation of connected written poems through the eyes of a daughter experiencing the aging process of her parents, is featured on pg. 80 of Other Worldly Women Press
"Winter 2020 Anthology: Healing Felines and Femmes." It is available for purchase in softcover at otherworldlywomenpress.com.

Amy was the featured weekly poet on the Other Worldly Women Press website in the third week of July '21, where three of her pandemic/racial justice-themed poems appeared: "Mask Up," "We're Going Out," "Uncaged Musings," and "Colorblind."

She also has a poem titled "Oxymorons" in "Corona Global Lockdown," an international hardcover anthology published by Poet's Choice in July '21. A collection of poems themed around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Amy’s entry was selected among 143 submissions by poets hailing from different parts of the world.

Purchases fuel Poet’s Choice initiatives of donating free copies of the book to the nonprofit Little Free Libraries across the globe, in order to build stronger communities, improve literacy, and offer book-sharing boxes to communities with limited access to books.
