About Our Organization:
Founded in 2007, Writing the World, LLC, provides writing and writing-related assistance, public speaking, and nonprofit services. For them, writing invites ideas, histories, connections, creations, dreams, and aspirations to come to life. They follow their Founder’s, Tisa M. Anders’, motto: As we write the world, may we also right it with justice, nonviolence, and peace. Anders brings her many years of professional expertise to the service of the general public and academia in this sacred process of writing: over 20 years as a published author, independent scholar, and executive manager in the nonprofit arena.
Tune in each month for Anders’ new postings. She finds much inspiration in the lives and words of biographical figures from the past and present. She shares parts of their lives as well as ways they have empowered and inspired her. She hopes they will similarly uplift each of you. She also occasionally writes about other topics which speak to her as well as invites select guest blogs. All images are from her private collection unless otherwise noted. Enjoy!
After fourteen years in nonprofit management, Dr. Tisa M. Anders branched out on her own. In September 2007, she founded Writing the World, LLC (WTW). This woman-owned small business is a registered Limited Liability Corporation in Colorado, U.S.A. From the beginning, she chose to offer three lines of products: writing assistance, public speaking, and nonprofit services. These join the two primary threads in her career of scholarship and activism.
Dr. Anders’ primary passion has been writing since she first learned the alphabet. As a child, she loved composing letters and murder mysteries. Throughout her schooling and career, she has called upon this skill. For example, in the early part of her professional life as a social worker, she wrote newsletter articles for her organization. Graduate work further strengthened her writing along with honing her critical thinking and research capabilities. With this foundation, she moved forward to become a published author. Starting in the nonprofit world in 1993, Anders particularly put these assets to work as a successful grant writer. Anders skillfully brings the written word to life with her vibrant public speaking.
She received her Ph.D. in Religion and Social Change with history as her foundational discipline from the University of Denver/Iliff School of Theology. Additional educational achievements include her B.A. and M.S. from University of Nebraska at Omaha and Master of Divinity from Iliff School of Theology. She has authored numerous book reviews on history and international relations along with chapters for anthologies on Mexico-US Migration with a focus on the Betabeleros (Mexican and Mexican-American beet workers) in Western Nebraska. She specializes in agricultural history, 19th century US reform movements, and oral history. She is completing her book-length manuscript on 19th century US activist/author, Lydia Maria Child, as well as journal articles on Junius G. Groves (1859-1925), African American farmer and entrepreneur from Kansas.
