Asha Anderson is a west coast poet, blogger and photographer who currently spends most of the year traveling in Europe and Asia.
Along with poet Robert Richkin, Anderson wrote for and published Brijbasi Spirit. She later established SkyRiver Press, a letterprss operation, edited and published Ash Canyon Review and published five issues of the zine Reddog Review before suspending the title in 2003.
She also published two one-of zines Driftwork and Ghostwriter and her poetry has appeared in zines and various poetry journals including The Whirligig, Byline Magazine, Westwind Review, Skidrow Penthouse, Poetry Motel and Sein und Werden.
Opinionated and outspoken, Anderson was very active in the discussions and battles in alt.zines until the newsgroup imploded and people began moving on to other venues.
Anderson abandoned her website, ashbot.com, in 2003 and took up blogging with a vengeance. Her two main blogs are Language Barrier, an ongoing, catch all narrative on whatever and Anna Sadhorse, where she publishes her poetry. Her main photo site is located at ashabot. She reads at open venues whenever possible, including New York’s lower east side, Florida, Oaxaca, London, Paris and most of the major cities on the west coast.
