When you work with Mary Anne, you get the whole person—writer, editor, and teacher. She is bright and thoughtful, perceptive and skilled, and fun to work with to boot! — Maggie Van Vliet, Artist, Teacher, and Management Consultant
I’m a writer as well as an editor, so I understand the struggles, mysteries, and rewards of the writing process. I opened Mary Anne Maier Editorial Services in 1997. Previously, I edited for a small university press as an independent editor, worked as a university publications editor, and taught college English. I've been a presenter at national, regional, and local writing conferences and workshops and a writer-in-residence for creative nonfiction.
Some of my publications include
- The Leap Years (Beacon Press)
- Numerous creative nonfiction essays and articles in such varied
settings as National Public Radio, the Journal of the American
Medical Association, Southern Living, and Terrain.org
- Creative nonfiction essays in literary anthologies
I am a member of
- Phi Beta Kappa
- Phi Kappa Phi
- Colorado Independent Publishers Association
- Story Circle Network
People create stories create people; or rather stories create people create stories.
