About the Adventures

Welcome to Author on Adventures!

This blog is mainly about writing, travel and intersectional feminism. Since its creation in May 2012, I’ve discussed many different topics: Poetry, journalism, and various art shows. I’ve also criticized TV shows, video games and books. My intention is and always has been to freely express myself and to hopefully inspire people in some positive ways.

During the spring of 2017, I started writing about my experiences at grad school. Later I kicked off “a new season” of the Story Time series as well: “…  my thoughts on the writing craft and storytelling styles, and occasionally I’ll give reviews on books, television shows and movies that leave an impression.”


About the Author

My name is Anna Josefin Palm. I’m a writer, martial artist and adventure addict.

Born and raised in Sweden. At the age of 12, I moved to Germany with my parents and two younger brothers. Four years later, we moved to the United States, the metro Detroit area specifically. It was an interesting time to move here since it was in 2008, right around when the Big Three got into financial trouble.

In 2015, I got my Bachelor of Arts from Central Michigan University, where my major was creative writing and my minor journalism. Over a year later I began working on my Master’s in Communication with a focus on feminist media studies at Oakland University.

One last thing: I love travel! I’ve been to quite a few places already – Denmark, France, Austria, Italy, Egypt, several states such as North Carolina and Maine… – but there is so much more I want to see, so many people to meet and so many different kinds of dishes to taste.
