Are you looking for a reader, a workshop, or a presentation? I would love to come and talk with your group. I offer a variety of services.
I am an experienced writing teacher with 10+ years in higher education. I host writing workshops for high school, higher ed, and professional groups.

Amye's award-winning entry in Scranton StorySlam. Trigger Warning: diet culture discussion.
“Amye Archer delights in person as much as she does on the page. Her narrative showcased her writing talent, and Amye also has the rare gift of translating her craft into explicit on-the-spot lessons for aspiring writers. If you have the chance to hear Amye in person, do it. She offers a night of entertainment and inspiration rolled into one!”
– Professor Laurie McMillian, Pace University
“Amye visited our campus to give a reading from her memoir, Fat Girl, Skinny. What an incredible evening! She thoughtfully tailored her reading selections to be of specific interest to our students. The resulting conversations ranged widely, from specifics of the writing process, especially memoir and travel writing, to explorations of gender dynamics, body awareness, identity, and other social issues. Our students especially responded to Amye's open, honest, engaging, and funny style.”
-Professor Erin Sadlack, Marywood University
