Amelia Aldred Author PhotoAmelia Aldred was raised by a folk singer and a lawyer in Indiana, leaving her with incurable sincerity and urge to fact-check. Her writing has been featured in Metaphorosis Magazine, Chicago Literati, Neutrons/Protons, and the anthology Undeniably Indiana (Indiana University Press). By day, she is a fundraising researcher and writer and has taught seminars on international philanthropy and internal communications. When she’s not thinking about writing or nonprofits, she bicycles along Lake Michigan and daydreams about owning a dog. Amelia lives with her husband in a former printing house in Chicago.
