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.

Somehow, your Big Apple teaching let me into the room of myself with all the lights turned on. What feels most remarkable is that now, months afterward, I feel certain I won’t let my light go out again. The illumination has lasted-thus, not a workshop high, but a new way of being. You unlocked the armor and flung open the portals to honoring my fullness, and gave me handles and toeholds to access and develop it in new ways.

Through Anya’s teaching techniques and working with her for a year, she helped transform my 70-page book into a 190-page memoir. By giving me the tools and skills to see the world through my characters’ eyes, I was able to birth them from a life of black and white into a life full of color.
