    Profile

    Anna Fridlis is a freelance writer, editor, and educator focused on awakening creative freedom and play through writing and multidisciplinary projects with her students and in her own work. She has been teaching at Parsons and working at the New School Learning Center since receiving her MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing from The New School for Public Engagement in 2014. Although largely a prose nonfiction writer, Anna is also informally a poet with poetry published in an anthology on immigrant voices in 2019 and the forthcoming in September 2020 Poets of Queens Anthology. Anna is the Nonfiction Editor at The Seventh Wave Magazine-- a literary organization that publishes exciting, new and diverse voices and nourishes the community through educational and outreach programming. As of summer 2020, Anna started the Writing Adventure Summer Camp-- an online writing camp for pre-teens and teens based on play and creative exploration of the written word.
