Angella d’Avignon       

I’m a writer based in Los Angeles.

My fiction was longlisted in the 2021 First Pages Prize and I was a finalist for the 2022 Ellen Meloy Desert Writers Prize and the 2022 Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. I was a 2023 ArtTable Fellow, a writer-in-residence at IKEA, and a MOMUS Arts Journalism resident. 

I am represented by Sarah Levitt at Aevitas Creative.

In addition to fiction, nonfiction, and reporting, I work in PR as well as a brand copywriter and strategist in the art, design, fashion, and architecture worlds. 

I also coach artists and anyone applying to grants, colleges and institutions, and/or writing project proposals. SERVICES HERE.
