Amy X. Wang is a writer and reporter born in Beijing, China and raised in the Sonoran Desert. She is particularly interested in the business of creativity—how mass/niche entertainment is made, ideas are sold, and the world at large is designed and distributed—and the future of media. She is currently Rolling Stone's music business reporter, and previously wrote for Quartz, The Atlantic, Slate, These Fifty States, and The Economist.

She holds a BA in English from Yale University, where she was an editor for the Yale Daily News and wrote, for her thesis, a collection of sad short stories about the sea.
