Biography

Amy Ellis Nutt is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist, author of three books and teacher of creative nonfiction writing. She is a graduate of Smith College, and has Masters degrees in journalism and philosophy. She has written about everything under the sun and for nearly every section of the newspaper, but her bailiwick is long-form literary storytelling. She was a writer-reporter at Sports Illustrated, a projects writer at The Newark Star-Ledger and most recently a science writer for The Washington Post. A Smith medalist in 2013, she was the Lakes visiting professor in writing in 2020, which was interrupted by COVID, which is why she’s thrilled to be returning to Smith for the Spring 2023 term.
