ATYIA POLICE

Writer / Screenwriter

Driven by the life stories captured in every moment, it was no wonder Atyia became enamoured with and decided to pursue the art of writing. Apart from dreaming up new worlds and characters in her spare time, she also has a great love of food. Because of her pensive, amusing, and curious nature, it’s never been difficult for her to find ways to weave tales of anything food-related into stories or casual conversation. 

 

In real life, Atyia has a degree in French Literature, a postgraduate certificate in Professional Writing, and has worked as a writer and editor in the publishing industry for a number of years. Her range of specialties extend from culinary delights to film and book editorial content. During her time as a writer for Foodism Magazine, she gained invaluable experience exploring the Toronto food scene and writing about food and drink. She’s also spent the last couple of years as an editor for a film review platform, Narrative Muse, where works by women, and others who are part of underrepresented groups, are showcased and explored. 

 

Along with passing her time writing and editing editorial content, Atyia has also spent many years writing various screenplays, from short films and spec television episodes to educational videos and webisodes. With her love for screenwriting, it’s only natural that she can be found spending most of her time researching and anticipating cinematic adventures through the fantastical, horrific, and sci-fi entrenched films she regularly enjoys. One can never have too much scope for the imagination and Atyia leaves room for it all in the work she creates.
