Hello there! I'm Amy Overgaard, a writer + editor based in St. Paul, Minn. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I've always loved a good story. Whether it's getting lost in a novel, listening to an episode of This American Life or hearing my grandparents' tales from the good old days, I'm constantly amazed at the way a story can transport and by its power to change you.
My love for story is inextricably intertwined with my passion for writing. Whether through an interview with an entrepreneur or helping a brand develop its company voice through web copy and a blog, I love giving people the opportunity to share a bit about themselves, their passions and experiences, and finding the opportunity for myself to indulge my curiosity and learn something new in the process.
Because it’s through the sharing of our stories that connections are made, and these connections are what lead to opportunity, friendship, hope and new adventures. And isn’t that what we’re all looking for?
Have a story for me to tell or a collaboration you’d like to discuss? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’d love to chat.
Other things I love? Anything and everything by Nora Ephron. Lilacs and daisies. Peanut butter toast. Sailor stripe tees. Champagne. The smell of the woods after it rains. A good game of cribbage. Strong, black coffee. A day in the city and an evening by the lake. Harry Potter.
