Hi, I’m Anita.

Anita Salemink is an artist and a writer based in Arnhem in the Netherlands.

She published a short non-fiction piece in Silver Apples literary magazine, chronicling the first few weeks as an immigrant after she and her family moved to Ireland when she was a child in the 1970s. She has been short-listed with her book in Mslexia’s Novella prize and is currently working on a novel set in WWII.

In her free time, she loves to walk through forests during a rainstorm and her favourite drink is tea – Earl Grey with a slice of lemon and a ginger biscuit.
