Hello! My name is Abigail K. Perry and I am a mainstream fiction writer living in Massachusetts where I teach creative writing and film production to grades 9-12. You might recognize me from my column at DIY MFA, “Let’s Talk Books“. I am also an active member of the DIY MFA street team, a ghostwriter for a holistic practice in Walpole, MA, and I’ve completed several Writers Digest courses including but not limited to: Advanced Novel Writing, Build Your Novel Scene by Scene, and Twelve Weeks to Your First Draft. I can’t get enough Writers Digest Workshops!

Additionally, I love using my personal experiences to design curriculum for my high school kiddos, having received a B.S. in TV, Radio, and Film from Syracuse University (S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications) and my Master’s in Education from Endicott College. I gained invaluable insight on the entertainment and publishing industries, working as a creative production intern for Overbrook Entertainment and a marketing and sales intern for Charlesbridge Publishing. Both were tremendous influences on my passion to write mainstream fiction.

You can read more about my work on my website or follow me on Twitter @A_K_Perry.

Looking towards the future, I also plan to teach screenwriting at An Unlikely Story (the priceless local bookstore owned by Diary of a Wimpy Kid‘s Jeff Kinney) in Plainville, MA. This class is in development and hopes to launch soon!

  1. Hi Abigail! I just read your first article on DIY MFA a few minutes ago – great job! And then I read your bio… and maybe you might have mentioned where you lived during the DIY MFA call a few weeks ago, and it just didn’t register with me then… But you’re doing a workshop at Unlikely Story?? I live in Foxboro! 😀


    • Hi Sara! We are so close to each other! I’d love to meet up sometime! Yes, I’ve been working with An Unlikely Story to get a screenwriting class going but numbers haven’t panned out yet. We are going to try again later this summer! Thanks for your comments on my article – I absolutely adore multiple of yours. I am SO excited to join diy MFA!
