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.
