BIO

Anne Liu Kellor is a writer, teacher, editor, and mother. Her essays have appeared in publications such as the anthology WAKING UP AMERICAN: COMING OF AGE BICULTURALLY (Seal Press), The Los Angeles Review, Vela Magazine, and Literary Mama. Anne holds a MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles and has received grants or residencies from Hedgebrook, 4Culture, Hypatia-in-the-Woods, and Jack Straw Productions. 

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, LEARNING TO SPEAK, which traces her search for language, love, and belonging. Her second creative nonfiction project, ARTIFACTS OF LONGING, explores the significance of our homes and belongings, impermanence, and all that we cling to and leave behind.

As a writing mentor and facilitator, Anne loves to create safe, fertile spaces where everyone is encouraged to write openly, share freely, and listen deeply to each other's silences and words. When not writing, she loves to read, hike, sing, dance, and be in nature.
