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.

Anya’s classes allowed me to not just be able to re-dream a world but to re-dream a universe! With me in it! My glorious writer’s self! Anya’s classes were a path into helping me successfully find my inward voice which now in the present has allowed me to write in a fury! Since Anya’s class I have had the opportunity to do poetry readings in Chicago, and created a writing group called The Night of the Living Tongues.

If my house were burning down, I would grab artwork, my book, and the notebooks I wrote in Anya’s classes. If you’re looking for an average writing teacher or editor, go elsewhere. Anya resides in the upper stratosphere of creativity and, if you let her, will lift your writing to heights you never dreamed possible. I won the 2006 New Mexico Discovery Award, first prize in non-fiction, for a story I began in Anya’s class. I divide my writing into two phases: pre-Anya and post-Anya. There is no comparison.
