Hi! I'm Amy Hildreth Chen.


In the five years since I earned my doctorate, I've moved twice, worked three different jobs, taught myself game design and quantitative methods, and written two books. The first book, Miracle and Mystery: A Guide to the Wade Hall Collection, is forthcoming from NewSouth Books. The second book, Archival Bodies: The American Literary Collections Market since 1944, is due to a university press in June 2018. Plus, I've given workshops at the Iowa Writers' Workshop and Columbia University and even chatted on Iowa Public Radio. In my spare time, I tend to my elderly Shiba Inu, Mochi, and bike through the Iowa cornfields.
