Meet Me

Jaya Sarathe Anne

Hi, I am Jaya (JS Anne) based in Calgary, Alberta and yes, there is no escape to the love I carry for nature like the way I carry for writing.
I started writing at a very early age. Initially, it started with simple journal writing and slowly it went on for scribbling prose to penning verses in my early twenties. These were published in several newspapers and magazines. Most of my writing inspiration comes from the natural environment. The majestic mountains, flowing rivers, rustling leaves and cool wind breeze among which my childhood was spent.
Academically, I pursued Mass Communications and started working in Print Media as Sub-Editor. I mastered the art of editing and polished myself as a professional feature and article writer. My work as a writer is highly influenced by journalistic writing. I have been regularly contributing to various media publications on subjects of the green lifestyle and the expat life. Currently, I am working to bring my debut poetry collection.
With this platform, ”Writing with Jaya” I cherish to share life stories of an expat! Hope to see you around!
