Amy Winters-Voss, also known as Shyredfox, is author of the urban fantasy novel Rise: The Liminal Chronicles. She adores Japan and textile arts.   Other projects she's involved in include:

  • Founded the Anvilite Streamers Corps (a writers, worldbuilders, artists, and TTRPGers Twitch streaming network) and streams several times a week.
  • Runs the vssCollab Twitter based flash fiction challenge and corresponding In Threads zine
  • Writes the Kreative Kaiju zine. It takes a whimsical look at the monsters that keep creatives from being their best. If we can remove the fangs from something, we can conquer it.

  •   Amy was also an organizer for the first WritersCONduit, a grassroots online writers conference. In 2021 she wrangled the calendar, helped with the website, and presented as a panelist and streamed in several panels ranging from beta editors and critique partners to mythology and folklore.  
    Stories are like air - we can not do without them.
