Remembering Anneke Vo

AnnekeDear readers,

It is with profound sadness that I write to inform you of the tragic death of one of SHIFT’s beloved writers, Anneke Vo.

Anneke died suddenly on Sunday 25th October at the age of 23.

I’m in shock, as she was young and healthy, and had her whole life ahead of her.

She was one of the best writers I’ve ever read, and without a doubt the most thought-stirring, soulful writer I’ve ever had the privilege of working with.

She was destined for greatness, and now I can’t quite bring myself to refer to her in the past tense.

She was also a good friend, and I’m overcome with grief.

If you would like to pay your respects, Anneke would have loved nothing better than for you to share her words, and weave your dreams of a better future.

Anneke’s work for SHIFT includes:

And her own blog can be found here.

Anneke, as the world should remember her: a strikingly intelligent, intensely creative, humble, and deeply empathic human being, whose absence cuts deeply for those of us who were close enough to love and feel loved by her.

Yours, in great sadness,

Kari McGregor, editor, on behalf of the SHIFT team
