Alma Martin

Fiction

Alma, also known as Annie, Martin is an MFA candidate in fiction. Originally from the wind-blown plains of Lubbock, TX (no, sorry, that’s not anywhere near Dallas, Austin, or Houston), she first moved to Pittsburgh to train with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre in 2014. During the majority of her time as an undergrad at Pitt, she performed corps de ballet roles with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre in both contemporary world premieres and classical productions that included Alice in Wonderland, The Nutcracker, Dracula, Giselle, and Romeo and Juliet, among others. She holds her B.A. in English Writing with a minor in Philosophy, and enjoys combining the two through tales of spaceships, aliens, and cyborgs. She’s particularly interested in questions of physical embodiment. When she’s not coming up with her own weird science fiction scenarios, she’s probably off reading someone else’s!
