I’m Amy Rose Spiegel, an editor and writer in New York City. My books are Action: A Book About Sex (Grand Central) and No One Does It Like You (Workman). You can find them at Bookshop or any other bookstore or library.
I’m the editorial director of VICE in the United States. Previously, I was an editor at Rookie and BuzzFeed, as well as other places. I was the founding editor-in-chief of Enormous Eye.
I wrote and hosted the podcast Power: Hugh Hefner, which was released by Sony and Somethin’ Else. Power is a narrative reported series about Playboy’s rise and fall, told through the stories of women who shaped the brand and knew Hefner best. The show was named one of Apple Podcasts’ best podcasts of 2021.
I’m the singer of the band Store Front. (I also live in a storefront.)
You can reach me at email@example.com and follow me on Twitter and Instagram. If you’re writing to me to pitch me at VICE, please do so at my work address, firstname.lastname@example.org—and, crucially, not any of the other places I just mentioned. Thank you!

Enormous Eye asked writers to record a full Saturday in detail. Here is my introductory entry. I’m not currently publishing new entries, but maybe one day, and there are plenty in the archive to love from Durga Chew-Bose, Tavi Gevinson, Lucy Sante, Hanif Abdurraqib, Dayna Tortorici, Judnick Mayard, and many other incredible writers. I recommend them all.
