Annie Fay Meitchik holds a BA in Creative Writing from The New School (2020) and a Certificate in Children's Book Writing and Illustration from UC San Diego (2019). She recently completed a 6-week Creative Writing Workshop with NY Writers Coalition (2022) and is currently enrolled in Sketch 101 at Upright Citizens Brigade.
As a personal essayist and emerging screenwriter, Annie’s written work is observational, introspective, and (hopefully) very funny. At present, she is building her portfolio of comedy writing, developing an essay collection, "Liminal Spaces," focusing on the in-betweens of adolescence and young adulthood that are not commonly written about, and looking for a home for her illustrated story, "The Sad Monster.”
In addition to her writing, Annie also works as a multimedia artist specializing in abstract gouache paintings and digital illustration. Her work has been featured in The Catalyst (UC Santa Barbara), she was 12th Street Literary Journal's featured artist, and her work has been represented by and sold at the Art N Soul on 101 gallery. With over a
decade of experience in youth arts education—working at a range of camps, galleries, and museums—Annie has developed a strong belief that the arts should be accessible to people of all identities and she continues to advocate for equality in the arts as a whole in everything she pursues.
Combining both her writing and art skills, she is interested in staff writing for humor publications and adult animated series.
