Welcome, disobedient writers!

Let’s face it; you write with no guarantee. You write with risk. You write with limitless promise. You write true and wild. You are capable of amazement.

May this be a resource for you.

I have attended many writing workshops throughout my life, and Anya’s have been the most exciting, unique, and productive I have ever experienced. I have also had the privilege to have Anya do editing work for me, and she gave my work the kind of deep, loving, and careful attention that each of us wishes that an editor will give to our “beloved creations!” If that’s not enough, Anya is a beautiful, powerful woman and human being, who believes that we can “change the world” with our writing, and she shows us how to have the courage to do so. There is really nothing more I can say, except “take Anya’s workshops!!”

Working with Anya has forever changed my relationship to writing, pulling it from deep in my unconscious up into the light of inquiry. I had been writing for quite a while, following the movements of my mind, my own impulses as to how to tell a story, and suddenly through her teachings I saw that I have so many choices as to how to proceed at each moment. […] Writing has become so much more playful and exciting. The joy I now get from my relationship to my craft is immense.
