Amy Sawyer is both a poet and a Christian, working to reunite those two estranged worlds. While earning her MFA in Creative Writing, she studied poetry in and out of the Christian tradition, finding many kindred spirits along the way. She’s been a part of a different misfit Christian congregations that allow her the space to try new approaches to creative worship. She’s led house churches, small groups, and elements of corporate worship for the past decade. Her favorite dead white guy poet is William Blake. Her poetry appears in numerous literary journals, including Stand Magazine, South Carolina Review, and Mud Season Review. Her life revolves around two kids, a dog, and a husband who do their best to drive her crazy, daily.
