First open the file that you want to append in append(a) mode and then write into it

Ex:
with open("example.txt", "rb") as myfile:
    myfile.read()

'This is the text that already exists'

with open("example.txt", "a") as myfile:
    myfile.write("\nThis text will be append to the file");

with open("example.txt", "rb") as myfile:
    myfile.read()

'This is the text that already exists
This text will be append to the file'
