Welcome to Poetry Alive.

Anita Ross


Anita Ross comes from LaGrange, Indiana and has been touring with Poetry Alive for 2 years. She received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from Purdue University and Indiana University.

Anita wrote her first play when she was in the 5th grade and has been a lover of theatre and performance ever since.

Her favorite part of Poetry Alive! is being able to work with the students so they can truly appreciate poetry.

One of Anita’s favorite poems is "September 1, 1939" by W.H. Auden

"Of course the game is rigged, but you can't win if you don't play." Robert Heinlein
