About Anne Pleun

I guess I’ve always been the one stepping out of my comfort zone (what is that, anyway). Going against the stream. I studied History, where I specialised in Revolutions, the non-violent variety. Having a strong urge for justice, I ended up receiving a Masters’ degree in European Union Law. Did not work one day in either of those fields, but they helped form me and my beliefs.

Stemming from a family of cheeky entrepreneurs it might have been in my DNA to found a company with a strong mission (Paper on the Rocks) – to change a vested industry.

When I was twelve years old, I desperately wanted to become a writer, to inspire people to keep on dreaming. And I kind of feel like that’s what I ended up doing. Only from a different angle. At Paper on the Rocks, we produce the tools that help people to keep on dreaming, writing, drawing and sharing thoughts.

And at the same time, I’m unable to put my pen down for good. So I decided to continue writing. This website functions as a collection of my essays.

The beautiful thing about sharing essays online, is the fact that there is a possibility to interact. So please, do not hesitate to get in touch, leave a comment or share your thoughts.

I’d be happy to hear from you.


All my best,

Anne Pleun
