Abigail Kay Perry is a debut writer living in Massachusetts where she teaches creative writing and film production to grades 9-12. She received her B.S. in TV, Radio, and Film from Syracuse University (S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications) and her Master’s in Education from Endicott College. Abigail gained valuable Hollywood experience working as a creative production intern in Los Angeles for Overbrook Entertainment (Will Smith’s company), and indispensable publishing experience as a marketing and sales intern for Charlesbridge Publishing.

In addition to writing her debut, Abigail plans 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! 😀


    1. 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!
