My name is Amber Smith and I'm a writer. I've always been pretty good with a pen, but I only recently started writing professionally.
At my day job, I'm a retail clerk. However, my real talents come out once I get home to my computer. I also work a steady copywriting side-hustle. My goal this year is to pick up more freelance gigs and, ultimately, make writing my full-time job.
Although this is my first "real" writing job, it's not my first rodeo as a published writer. I previously spent three years on staff at my University's student newspaper. During that time, I worked my way up from a reporter to Editor-in-Chief. I was even named as the paper's best new writer during my first semester onboard.
Since then, I've been working on my own personal creative writing projects. Another one of my goals is to publish a collection of my poetry or short stories.
