Ann Humphreys was born in Winston-Salem and has lived much of her life in North Carolina. She graduated with high honors from Barnard College and obtained her MFA in Poetry from the Warren Wilson Program for Writers. She has worked as a server at Chapel Hill's legendary Pepper's Pizza, an editorial assistant at the local ad-free publication The Sun Magazine, a mitigation investigator in North Carolina death-penalty appeals cases, and a world-renowned professional hula-hoop teacher. In 2000, she published her first book: a collection of poetry called Which Lies Are Necessary?. During the Covid pandemic, she crowdfunded $10K to publish her new memoir The Tao of Hoop: On the Transformational Practice of Hula-Hooping (Seriously, Though).
