Amey Miller is a dedicated experimentalist with wide-ranging interests. She holds a master of fine arts degree from Warren Wilson College. She has published a story “News” in The American Literary Review, a translation of Osip Mandelstam's The Horseshoe Finder in The Carolina Quarterly, and an excerpt from an image and text project in the online journal Blackbird. In 2016 she and composer Christopher Preissing received a Chicago Artist Residency production grant at the Experimental Sound Studio, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. In December 2016 Preissing and Miller, with ESS engineer Alex Inglizian, presented an interactive text--soundscape at ESS using MAX programming. Her writing is part of the on-going genealogically-based project In Search of Margaretta Black. Her novel Snakes is forthcoming this year from New Laconic. It is the first volume in a projected four-part series, Songs of All Other Birds. This project weaves together two different narrative voices, plus found material of many kinds. While at MacDowell, she completed a revision of her novel Traverse, which is the second volume of her series Songs of All Other Birds.
