Anne Camozzi creates art and writes in Nova Scotia, Canada. An early passion for the arts led her to an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University (Toronto) in 1976. While studying painting, she was one of two writing apprentices selected to work with Canadian author, W.O. Mitchell. She also worked as a stringer for Time magazine and as an art critic for the York University newspaper, Excalibur. While at York, Anne studied with Governor General award winning poet, Don Coles who remained a lifelong mentor.  After graduating, she joined the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) as a television and radio reporter for a few years. Later, she moved to Nova Scotia and earned a Masters in Adult Education at Saint Francis Xavier University. While raising two children, Anne became an award winning, international environmental education consultant, and later, a university senior administrator.

A facilitator, writer and educator throughout her life, she has presented widely on many topics including environmental education, sustainable communities, nature and creativity, as well as art and pain management. As an environmental consultant, Anne wrote numerous manuals and papers and co-authored several books. In addition to this more technical writing, she works on poetry, fiction and journaling and has done so throughout her life, and more recently writing full-time. In 2018, Anne’s story, The Great Caribou was longlisted for the CBC Short Story writing contest. She is currently querying her first novel, while working on her second novel and other writing projects.
