Thank you for being curious to learn more about me! I can't wait to meet YOU!
I tried to write a short explanation of who I am and what I do, but I keep messing up the word count.
A mama writer, creative writing teacher, editor, yoga teacher, star witch.
Born and grew up in Belgrade, Serbia, then moved to the United States, Seattle, WA, where I've become who I am today, I continue to live in-between languages and continents. I also speak Italian, and every day, I use the language of the stars to align myself with the Universe.
I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College, class 2017, Port Townsend, WA, and a BA degree in Italian language and literature from Belgrade University, Serbia.
I serve as a Managing Editor for Pif Magazine.
I created MAMA WRITES when I was in the middle of my MFA program, writing a novel with an infant sitting in my lap, and a preschooler clinging to my arm. I wanted to help more mama writers figure out how to write alongside raising children.
I think too much: about stories, characters, words, and their usage; about the world and its pain. Such overthinking creates anxiety and worry. When worries kick in, I turn to yoga to find my way back to the body and senses.
I am a 500 hours registered yoga teacher, specialized in teaching Yin Yoga, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Trauma-Informed Yoga.
