Hi! My name is Annika Liss. My pronouns are she/her. I live in Durham, Connecticut, where I attend Coginchaug Regional High School. I love writing and am an aspiring novelist. My work has been published both here at jGirls+ and at Under the Madness magazine. I was also a finalist in the 2021 NaNoWriMo Now What contest. Outside of writing, I’m very into music. I play the French horn for both my school’s band and the Shoreline Youth Symphony Orchestra. I have also been accepted into the Southern Connecticut Regional Band twice and am looking forward to competing for a spot again this November. I also play guitar in the school pit orchestra. I’m involved in quite a few extracurriculars at school, including Book Club, Latin Club, Art Club, and Model UN. This will also be my first year as an editor for the school newspaper, The Devil’s Advocate.
