Mary Amato


I'm a fiction writer, poet, playwright, singer-songwriter, and teacher. Coolest day job ever: I'm the author of 16 award-winning works of fiction for children and young adults. My books have been translated into foreign languages, optioned for television, and produced onstage. I teach creative writing workshops of all kinds and for all ages here and around the country. I also teach songwriting, uke, guitar, and vocal performance. I'm the founder of several arts salons. www.maryamato.com

Artist Statement/Focus

As a writer, I give voice to the funny, sad, messy, and wondrous stories of life, especially the stories of children and young adults. My mission: each work has humor, heart, and grit. As a songwriter/musician, I perform and work on original songs. As a teacher, I help students of all ages find what makes their souls thrum, whether it's writing a memoir, overcoming stage fright, or learning how to play the uke.
