Biography

Anne Witkavitch had already established herself as a successful corporate communications professional when she decided in midlife to pursue her lifelong ambition to write and publish. While raising two young children and blessed with a supportive stay-at-home husband, Anne began the delicate balancing act of pursuing a full-time MFA in professional writing while holding down an executive role and being a dedicated parent --all the while writing wherever and whenever she could.

Anne takes an eclectic approach to her writing, focusing on essay, feature, fiction, and children’s books. When asked to describe what she writes about, Anne quotes one of her favorite writers, Joan Didion, who once said, “I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.”

Anne is an acute observer of the world around her, and has the ability to translate those observations into prose that resonates with readers. She tackles diverse topics ranging from communications, writing, and business strategy to families and relationships, personal balance, and goal setting. A common theme centers on achieving successful partnerships and collaboration in the workplace, home, or community.

Her work has appeared in Miranda Literary Magazine, The Journal of Employee Communications Management, Time Inc.'s Work in Progress blog, TravelingMom.com, and Vermont Short Bites. She is also a regular blogger for TravelingMom.

Anne lives in the Connecticut countryside with her husband, two children, and a cat aptly named “Shakespeare.” She holds an M.F.A. in Professional Writing and a B.A. in English.

In addition to pursuing her writing, Anne is owner and president of C-Suite Communications.
