“How people tell their stories is an intimate experience. Something as small as a replaced word or misplaced comma can change the entire feeling of a story—and how the storyteller feels about themselves.”
Amy Molloy is a journalist, editor and Hay House author who produces uplifting content for the biggest names in global publishing.
Her sell-out book, The World is a Nice Place: How to Overcome Adversity Joyfully was the product of ten years' worth of research, interviewing empowered survivors about their coping mechanisms for overcoming the worst experiences of your life whilst still hoping for the best. It followed her debut book, Wife Interrupted, which she wrote at the age of 23 after being widowed (a book that made headline news for its unconventional account of grief).
To date, Amy has written 14 books under her own name as a ghost-writer for high-profile entrepreneurs, entertainers and wellness influencers. Her latest, Peace Instead of This was released for free on Instagram (one chapter per day).
As a content creator, Amy has collaborated with some of the biggest brands in the world including GoPro, Netflix, Uber, Lorna Jane, the Sydney Opera House and Selfridges department store.
Previously editor of Grazia Australia and Collective Hub - a magazine that exists to ignite human potential - Amy is an influential voice across print, podcasts and television. She is also the creator of the Storytelling for Healing Public Writing workshop series—online and in-person courses which teach people to share their personal stories, publicly, in a way that raises their profile, promotes a cause or fulfils their purpose - but also protects themselves.
In 2019, she opened a Pop/Up Counselling Studio to break down the stigma around emotional healing and make mental health support accessible to all.
