Assistant Executive Editor

Amanda Scott is originally from Houston, but now lives and writes in central Texas. Her prose has appeared in Crab Orchard ReviewGulf CoastNew SouthphoebeThe Common, and elsewhere.

What she’s looking for: The curious and complicated, the linear and fragmented, stubborn and stellar work that defies labels.

Writers she admires: Rachel Cusk, Jennifer Egan, Francisco Goldman, ZZ Packer, Zadie Smith—so many and too many, which is utterly delightful.
