Vanessa Annand


Vanessa arrived at Alive Publishing Group (APG) by way of weekly newspapers. She was pleased to trade in her trench coat and inky fingers for a yoga mat and a natural health library. A graduate of the University of Victoria’s Creative Writing and Professional Writing programs, Vanessa has worked for publications ranging from a lifestyle glossy to a literary journal. While studying dressage in southern Spain, she wrote a column for a national equestrian publication.

Vanessa looks forward to mining more of her passions—including vegan cooking and healthy living—for inspiration at APG.
