Hi, I’m Anya Achtenberg.

I’m an award-winning author of fiction and poetry, and a long-time teacher of fiction, memoir and poetry. 

This website is a writer’s place. It is a gathering of what can be useful to this work.

With the jolting changes we are experiencing, this is a place to think together,
a place to re-examine our writing, our focus, our writing’s responsiveness to the world,
For  quick entry into craft, and lightning clarification of a useful point that will make your work go easier, you’ll be able to refer to the Juicy Craft Points for Creative Writers blog series. Each post on this blog offers an answer to a question that many writers have asked me.
As you look over the many course offerings, you might get struck by the one that is right for you at this moment. You can see a road into your own development.
This website is certainly where you might see what I’ve been up to, in my books and other published and unpublished writings; in interviews; in recorded readings; but, just as much, it is a place to support you in taking steps in your own work, and to know that there is  community of others doing the same.
And here you are only a message away from help available from me in many forms.
