Hailing from the rough-and-tumble deserts of southern Arizona, where one doesn’t have to bother with such trivialities as “coats” or “daylight saving time,” Anna is a freelance writer living in Oakland. She has been the Managing Editor of the East Bay Express, the Arts and Culture Editor at SF Weekly, the Social Media and Communications Fellow at Mother Jones, and has written about everything from bars and restaurants to news to theater to sex toys, in addition to writing several different sex and relationship columns for The Chicago Tribune’s RedEye, AfterEllen, and more.
Her work can also be found on The Toast, San Francisco magazine (“The Oakland Issue” won a National Magazine Award), BuzzFeed, AlterNet, The Bay Citizen, Salon, The Daily Dot, and The Rumpus. In addition, she has managed social media campaigns for best-selling authors (such as Peter Orner), non-profit organizations (Off the Mat), and for individuals and small businesses (Mysore SF). Plus, one time Amanda Palmer asked her out on Twitter, with Neil Gaiman’s blessing.
