Women's Words on November 11, 2012 featured Amy Jo Swing of Duluth, reading three poems: "Coloring the Monsters," "Crossing It Off," and "Wordage."
Amy Jo Swing has been writing poetry seriously since ninth grade algebra. Since then, she has been blessed enough to receive a McKnight/Loft poetry grant as well as several poetry contest awards and writing retreat stays. In the last few years, she has also turned to writing children's fiction and poetry, often in the same project. She lives and works in Duluth, Minnesota with her partner and their two daughters.
