Hi, I’m Amy K. Bell, or Amy Bell Hou. Yeah, I got married.
I’ve had work published in The Tusk, Transfer, Midnight Breakfast, Red Light Lit and JERRY Magazine (#8). Some of my translations of Chinese poems were published in sPARKLE & bLINK, The Margins and Cura.
My short novel, Bald Mountain, won the 2014 Clark Gross Novel Award, judged that year by Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski (Painted Cities). An excerpt of Bald Mountain also won the 2014 Leo Litwak Award from Transfer Magazine.
I am a co-founder and editor of Drop Leaf Press. We publish poetry, lovingly.
I earned a B.A. from Columbia University in English Literature and an M.F.A. in Writing from San Francisco State University.
Last year, I made a baby! Here we are, looking astonished in our own ways.
