Thanks for stopping by.  I'm Allison, and I live and write in Columbia, Missouri. Here in COMO, I work for True/False, a nonfiction film festival.  I recently earned a Master's degree in Creative Nonfiction from the University of Missouri.  Currently, I'm working on finishing my first book.  My great loves include: any kind of cheese or baked good, walking my too-smart dog, leaves becoming autumn colors, watching movies, reading in the sun, and making lists. 

I teach, tutor, freelance, and copyedit.

My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Los Angeles Review, Oxford Public Health Magazine, Hippocampus, the Crab Orchard Reviewthe museum of americana, Prick of the Spindle, and elsewhere.  A complete list is on the Writing page.


Read. Write. Connect.
