About Annie Raab


ANNIE RAAB writes fiction and art criticism. Her work has been published in print and online, most frequently in Kansas City’s alternative paper, The Pitch, where she was a regular contributor of arts journalism and reviews (2015-2018). She earned her BFA in Sculpture and Creative Writing at the Kansas City Art Institute, and is an MFA candidate in Fiction and Arts Leadership at Virginia Tech. She works with students at Virginia Tech and The School of the New York Times. Her art reviews, short fiction, criticism, and interviews have been published online and in print.

When she’s not writing fiction, Raab works with artists, galleries, and arts organizations by writing grants and securing funds to help support the continuation and success of a healthy visual art community.

Annie is primarily interested in cultural criticism, contemporary visual art, contemporary fiction, writing spaces, and working with students. She currently lives in Appalachia.
