Amy Hoskins is a poet and visual artist creating with disabilities from her home in South Nashville, TN. With two additional poets, Hoskins conducted a Spoken Word Immersion Program funded by Nashville Metro Arts every other Monday at Harvest Hands Development Corporation during the school year. Hoskins helped local nonprofit Conexion Americas create a community guide and map for the Nolensville Pike community, the most diverse 10 miles in Nashville.
Hoskins also hosted an all languages poetry open mic in 2017 with Conexion Americas, from April through June. The all-languages-welcome open mic moved to Flatrock Coffee, Tea, and More, which is also located on Nolensville Pike. The Flatrock Poetry Open Mic was held monthly from June, 2017 to June, 2018. Since then, Hoskins has hosted a monthly Gestalt Poetry Open Mic, which is virtual for now. Hoskins has had eleven poems published in the United States and one in Amsterdam.
For her 55th birthday in October, 2019, Hoskins published a two-volume collection of poetry, written from 1985-2019. www.amyhoskins.com
