BIO

Anne Liu Kellor is a writer, teacher, editor, writing coach, and mother. Her essays have appeared in publications such as the New England Review, Longreads, Entropy Magazine, The Normal School, Fourth Genre, The Los Angeles Review, Vela Magazine, Duende, and Literary Mama. Anne holds a MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles and has received fellowships and grants from Hedgebrook, 4Culture, Hypatia-in-the-Woods, and Jack Straw Productions. She teaches creative nonfiction workshops at the Hugo House and works one-on-one with writers as well.

Born and raised in Seattle, Anne spent her twenties wandering the globe and living in China, the birthplace of her mother. Those years are reflected in her memoir manuscript, HEART RADICAL, which traces her search for language, love, and belonging.

Her second creative nonfiction memoir manuscript, ARTIFACTS OF LONGING, explores the significance of our homes and belongings, marriage, impermanence, and all that we cling to and leave behind. She is also at work on a collection of essays, titled UNCERTAINTY, TRUST, AND THE PRESENT MOMENT: Musings from an Agnostic Buddhist.

As a writing coach and facilitator, Anne seeks to create safe, fertile spaces where people can listen, share, and witness each other’s stories. When not writing, she loves to read, hike, sing, dance, and be in nature.
