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.

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.

The work I did in [Anya’s] classes was vital and immediate and more real than any writing I had done before. I learned so much abut how to pare down–and about how to come to my work with new perspective. […] I can say that my own experience of writing and creating has been changed forever by working with Anya. If you have this opportunity in your life, take it.
