Media and Communications Associate
Amanda Liaw (she/her/hers) is a Singaporean and graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Growing up with a love for literature, theatre, film, and all forms of storytelling, she brings her writing and strategy skills to the PEN/Faulkner Foundation where she advocates passionately for the power of literary education in shaping lives and communities. She views her prior experiences in film production, stage management, and digital media strategy through an interdisciplinary lens – with narrative at the heart of human connection and empathetic understanding as its purpose. In her personal life, Amanda spends most of her time dancing, some of her time reading and arguing about philosophy, and the rest of her time figuring out how she might build her own self-sustainable home one day.
