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.

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.

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.
