Spotlight On Writers

Anna Canić


  1. Where, do you hail from?
I was born in Odessa, Ukraine, grew up into an author in Łódź, Poland, wrote my first novel in Paraćin, Serbia, but my heart belongs to a place I call Rainy Town. Dear locations and names should be kept in secret to remain.
  1. What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?

The one who made it home, the inspiration he gives me… the freedom and warmth we both feel walking on the streets of our “space”, which could not be found elsewhere.

  1. What turns you on creatively?

Prominent people, who were slandered throughout history, controversial things about religion and spirituality, and love – the one for all my lives.

  1. What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?

My readers would say – Joy, and it is definitely a kind of source, support, and strength for Wisdom… Still, I would go with midnight, that I used in my latest micropoetry.

“I’m falling from heaven
Like midnight –
My wings to your feet
I’m your fate.
You’re my choice.”

  1. What is your pet peeve?

Critics who have no idea how to create things and toxic mothers-in-law.

  1. What defines Anna Canić?

Liberty, but not permissiveness. Devotion to my vocation and dedication to my love. I can fight for both, and I would win.
