In her collages, Amy Wright calls attention to the integration of art, science, and nature. She presented them most recently as the 2022 Wayne G. Basler Chair of Excellence at East Tennessee State University. She has also been awarded two Peter Taylor Fellowships to the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop, an Individual Artist Grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission, and a fellowship to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Her nonfiction debut, Paper Concert: A Conversation in the Round, was published with Sarabande Books. She has also authored three poetry books and six chapbooks. Visual art adds a mode of expression to her work that serves as narrative shorthand for stories we might not otherwise communicate or know.
