MFA Students

Alma Martin


Alma, also known as Annie, Martin is a first-year 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 the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School 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. When she’s not coming up with her own weird Sci Fi scenarios, she’s probably reading someone else’s.
