Asha Anderson is a poet and sometimes publisher currently living in Nevada, U.S.A.
Opinionated and outspoken, Asha was a very active participant in the ongoing battles and discussions in alt.zines before it imploded and blogs and discussion boards took up the slack. At that time, she also wrote and published the zine Reddog Review before indefinitely suspending the title in 2003. She was the driving force behind the creation of Ash Canyon Review and the website for the Ash Canyon Poets, a long standing critique group in Carson City, Nevada. However, due to clashing personalities and conflicts of opinion this publication was discontinued after only two issues and the website is also defunct. She also launched a zine and website called Driftwork with an anything goes format, more to her liking. The first (and last) issue came out in the summer of 2006.
In the '70s, Asha was assistant editor and writer for the Brijbasi Spirit, the now defunct journal for an ongoing yoga society. She and the rest of the press group left abruptly when the political climate became life threatening. Leaving there, she founded SkyRiver Press, a letterpress operation. These days SkyRiver Press is digital although currently she is more interested in writing and submitting work to outside publications. Her poetry has appeared in various journals, zines, and newspapers over the years. She resides in Nevada but spends about half the year traveling.
