When she was just 10, Anna Goldsmith's hippie parents bought her a journal to record her feelings. Instead she wrote jingles for her favorite candy, Atomic Fireballs.
Thus began a passion for advertising and the power of the word.
Now Anna spends her days wrestling with the tough questions of The Writing Life: Does anyone really know what it means to synergize? And if not, why are we all doing it? Or, is gray the new black and if so, what color is black? (Oh, wait, that's what she wrestles with at night.)
Fortunately, Anna's experience writing brochure, advertising and catalog copy for the likes of Brookstone and Timberland has taught her that in life, there are no answers — only more questions. In the meantime, all you can do is get some good writing done.
In 2006 Anna was part of a team that won a bronze Ad Club Hatch Award for work on Comcast.com. Earlier in life, she received an M.A. in non-fiction writing from the University of New Hampshire and B.A. in art from Colby College.
