Writer of climate fiction, & stories & poetry of home/lessness & pain, love & faith…
All broken into beauty ~


Anneliese writes short stories, novels and poetry in Richmond, BC, Boulder, CO, and points between on the train.  After teaching Italian (and then ‘Green Italian’, incorporating sustainability) at UBC, she now works at an extreme weather shelter when not riding the rails. More and more of her work is set in the near future in a climate-changed world, aka cli-fi [SEE On Cli-Fi –  http://laughinginthelanguage.com/my-cli-fi-manifesto/ ]

A Pushcart Prize nominee and former Bread Loaf Scholar, she completed her BA in French and Italian at Middlebury, and MFA in Creative Writing at UBC.
