About the Corner

*Edited April 30, 2017.

This blog is about writing, poetry, journalism, travel and feminism. I’ve also written about various art shows and criticized TV shows, video games and books. There hasn’t been a lot of action for the past year because of personal stuff, but I’m excited to continue expressing myself here and hopefully inspire people in some positive way.

My name is Anna J. Palm. I’m a writer, painter and martial artist.

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 media studies focus 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.
