Teaching

I currently teach writing and studies in drama at the University of Virginia where, in 2019, I won the Sydney Blair Award for Excellence in Teaching. 

I have taught writing and performance based classes and workshops for organizations including:

The University of Westminster 

London Southbank University

Hong Kong Institute of Education

The BRIT School for the Performing Arts 

Victoria and Albert Museum

St Christopher's Hospice

Eastside Educational Trust

I also led a group called Creative Circle at artsdepot for a year, giving regular classes on writing, storytelling and other forms of creative expression and have led large scale community arts projects for Battersea Arts Centre & Young Vic.

Students Say:

"This class was phenomenal. Anna is one of the most caring, insightful, and engaging professors I've had in my 3 years at UVA. Workshop pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I felt safe doing that in this class. I a™m leaving this class a better writer and completely validated in my desire to write.'

 

'[Anna's] positive attitude and useful feedback made everyone excited to write and also feel accepted enough to share work and give honest feedback. It was obvious that she was truly passionate about the subject matter and wanted to genuinely help everyone grow as individuals and as writers.'

 

'Before [taking this class], I wasn't sure if I wanted to pursue creative writing, but now I'm positive!'
