Hi! My name is Anissa and I’m a California-born and Florida-raised writer.

I’ve been writing stories and poems since I was a child, finding it therapeutic in playing make believe and making sense of my thoughts. As an adult, I learned that writing was powerful for its way of connecting universal themes with readers. As in my experience, the most rewarding feeling was when my stories and poems somehow managed to comfort close family and friends. Realizing that stories are universally impactful has fostered my admiration for the art.

I received my Bachelors in English from the University of North Florida with a minor in Psychology. In college, one of my short stories was published in The Talon Review.

For me, writing has been the most amazing outlet for putting down on paper what is honest and full of hope. Since graduating, I am continually seeking to write in ways that are even more relatable, comforting and exposing. My goals include attending a Christian bible school in Southern California (my current endeavor) followed by attaining a Masters in English and/or Creative Writing.
