Anne Merritt bio picI am a Canadian teacher, writer, and editor who has spent over eight years living, teaching, and travelling in Europe and Asia. My writing has been published in The Globe and Mail, CNN.com, The Telegraph, GoOverseas.com, and the Matador Network, among other publications.

I love writing about language, travel, education, inter-cultural encounters and women’s issues. Mostly, I love writing about people and how they interact. I like books, hiking, crossword puzzles, spicy food, Korean singing rooms, and a good bakery. I talk with my hands a lot, and I’m great with a subway map.

I am currently working on a fiction piece about a group of expats in East Asia.

  1. Awesome that you went to Korea! I went when I was younger as I had a Korean mate. Love Korean food and have even been to the Korean singing rooms :S.

    When did you learn to speak Korean?

  2. Thanks for writing, Tim. I’m still in Korea now and have learned it patchily over the years, with self-study and with tutors. By the way, they have singing rooms on commuter trains now!

  3. Hi Anne

    I met you in a hostel in Beijing – we chatted about korea – I’m glad you went! And enjoyed! Are you still there now. I ended up living for a year in broking learning the language.

    Lovely to read your writing!
