Episode 23: Amber Petty
Amber Petty used to be an actor but now she writes and helps other creatives get into freelance writing. In her acting days, she performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, did improv with Baby Wants Candy, and did over 500 shows of the Off-Broadway 50 Shades! The Musical. Since then, she's written for The New York Times, Thrillist, Greatist, Bustle, MTV, IFC, and lots more (many of which aren't as cool). Now, she teaches freelance writing and works on very important projects like her book of short stories inspired by the musical Cats.
