Submission Guidelines for ATA Publications
Stephanie Arwen Beck , Editor

Stephanie Arwen Beck lives in Denver, CO with a small zoo that includes a partner and three kids somewhere in there. She's been studying and teaching the Tarot for over 20 years. She specializes in reading for writers with spreads such as Muse of Inspiration and What Happens Next. As the presenter of the popular Tarot For Writers workshop, she's helped many authors past writer's block and plotting issues.She is Pisces with a Scorpio moon and Aquarius rising which means she loves to be a bit different and indulges herself by creating Tarot spreads. She helps her clients question the patterns in their lives based on what they see in the cards. Reading for her is a partnership-based activity.

You can visit Arwen at her online home Tarot By Arwen, Compassionate, Caring, Confidential for over 23 years
