About the Presenter

Amy Benson Brown, ACW Director of Academic Writing, is a writer and developmental editor, with over a decade of experience working directly with academic authors to help them reach their publication goals. As Director of the Author Development Program at Emory University from 2002—2012, she worked with faculty in disciplines that range from Political Science to History, Theology, Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Music, and Law. She brings to ACW particular experience in book and book proposal development and enjoys working both with first-time academic authors and senior scholars who seek to reach broader or “cross-over” audiences. Her essays about the challenges of academic writing have appeared in The Chronicle of Higher Education and The Journal of Scholarly Publishing. Her approach to developmental editing is informed by both her own background as a teacher of writing and her own continuing practice as a writer. Her publications include a book of literary criticism that grew out of her dissertation, two edited collections, academic articles, science journalism, and, most recently, a book of poetry. She’s received her BA at the University of South Carolina, an MA in English Literature from Rutgers University, and a PhD in English Literature from Emory University.
