Welcome! My name is Anna. I am a literary lifestyle blogger and freelance editor from the Minneapolis area.

I have loved reading, writing, and storytelling for as long as I can remember. Even when I was still toddling around in diapers, my nose was stuck in books. As a potty-trained adult, I am still a book lover and one of those nuts you hear about who actually chose to pursue what they love as a career. Nothing breathes life into my day like getting hyped about literature or some other nerdy nonsense. At Cask & Quill I hope to spread that excitement like wildfire (yes, this is a Game of Thrones reference). When I’m not working I enjoy reading (no, really), snacking!, taking photos, traveling, being crafty, spending time with family and friends and observing wildlife (mostly flailing over cute animals).

Thank you for taking the time to peruse Cask & Quill. Please pull up a comfy chair and make yourself at home! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to drop me a line.

Cask & Quill

Cask & Quill is all about that literary life. This website is a space for book lovers to come and nerd out together. There’s nothing I love more than sharing my passion for literature, characters and language with others. I hope, together, we can inspire each other to immerse ourselves even deeper into a meaningful, bookish life. Whether adding character-inspired outfits to your wardrobe, getting inspired to read something new or adding literary elements to your home, there’s always a way to cultivate a sense of the magical in your world. Explore the categories in the menu to find recipes, recommendations, party ideas and more. If you need a little help getting started, read more about what a literary lifestyle is.

If you have any topics you’d be interested in seeing more of here, I’d love to hear from you!

Editing Services

While earning my B.A. in English, I refined my skills as a writer and editor. Through various work experience I have become very familiar with professional writing as well. Outside of my degree, I have also received formal training in copy editing, English grammar, and research techniques for writers. I love being able to use this knowledge to help a client present his, her or their best work to the world.

If you are in need of editing or proofreading of your book, website or document, visit my services page to find out how I can help you!
