Hello & Welcome.

Dr. Anna King (Ph.D., M.A, B.A) is a writer & creative content curator (see current clients: https://annaking.ie/prgalway, as well as a teacher of SLOW yoga & mindfulness.

Currently I am working on a series of creative nonfiction compositions (visual, audio and prose), including a book in collaboration with Dr. Martin Ruffley, from GMIT Department of Culinary Arts.

Title: Singing the Soul Back Home: The Journey of Life & Irish Cuisine.

Food & The Journey of Life: Singing the Soul Back Home.  By Master Chef Martin Ruffly & Anna King.

Food & The Journey of Life: Singing the Soul Back Home. By Master Chef Martin Ruffly & Anna King.

As a writer my specialist interests are health, heritage, well-being & locally inspired cuisine. 

What keeps me inspired is community, spending time immersed in nature, my work with other creatives (including a collaboration with Galway Hooker 2020 boat-building project) & teaching.

Blogs:

Storied Landscapes shares creative non-fiction prose & research.

Mindful Landscapes & Portraits of Adoption are conversations about the lived-experience of adoption.

Slow Living Ireland is a series of vignettes of local life, simple pleasures, changing seasons & gastronomy inspired by our local landscape.

Lastly, I have just launched the Centre for Wild Atlantic Wellness: Celebrating the West of Ireland’s Community Waterways & Seascapes.

After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the things we need most in the world.
