Her writing has appeared in The New Republic, NBC News, POLITICO Magazine, Pacific Standard, The Guardian, The American Prospect, Salon, The Nation, Grantland, The Christian Science Monitor, The Boston Review, and other publications.

In 2012, she founded Literary Detroit. Anna is also a writer-in-residence in Detroit high schools through the InsideOut Literary Arts Project, and on Thursday evenings, she facilitates a theater workshop at a men's prison in Macomb County, Michigan. She graduated from the University of Michigan's Residential College with highest honors, and from Warren Wilson College's MFA Program for Writers, where she practiced (and practiced...) fiction.
