Anthea Pretorius was born into a family of storytellers. She is inspired by nature and wildlife; by silence and music; by art and architecture; by misty days, rainy nights, myths, movies and the Milky Way. Her creative writing appears in various anthologies and magazines. Two of her poems were published in the 2017 AVBOB National Poetry Competition on the website and one also appears in a special edition of Stanzas (2018). Anthea holds a Master’s degree in Publishing. At the University of Pretoria, she produces a range of undergraduate brochures and is the Editor of the JuniorTukkie Magazine. From February 2019, Anthea has enthusiastically embraced her new role as Creative Writing Editor for the English Academy Review.
