My name is Anna J. Palm and I’m a writer, painter and martial artist.
In May 2015, I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts; my major was creative writing and journalism my minor. Shortly afterwards, I worked for The Morning Sun, a (then-local) paper in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. It was a wonderful learning experience and kind of an adventure until the company downsized and laid off people at several newspapers, including me. It’s doggy dog world out there.
Realizing that I needed additional education and a different life style, I began attending grad school at Oakland University in the fall 2016. Currently I’m working on my master’s in communication with a focus on media studies. People keep asking me if I’m going after a PhD – probably since they can hear on my voice that I love research – but unless I plan on teaching, there’s no point in getting one. My future goal is to get a job at a big company like General Motors or a publishing company where I can use what I’ve learned at grad school and grow as a writer.
Truth to be told, the Big Dream is to have my poems and fictional stories published one day so that I can live as a full-time author, like J.K. Rowling or Neil Gaiman.
Plus, I love travel. I’ve been to quite a few places already – Denmark, France, Austria, Italy, Egypt, several states such as North Carolina and Maine… – but there is so much more I want to see, so many people to meet and so many different kinds of dishes to taste.
