With a background in book publishing and newspaper copy editing and reporting, Allison has a passion for precision and clarity in writing. She also has great interest in what the process of writing can bring about in terms of creativity, therapy, problem solving, and surprise breakthroughs. Allison believes everyone can benefit from deep play, either by working with words or by doodling, coloring, and sketching. By using the meditative space between paper and pen, one can create not just a piece of work but can also produce new ideas, come to realizations, or settle into decisions. Allison has her MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. She also believes that everyone has a unique and compelling story within, and she’s excited to work with Project Write Now and pursue the power of the written word.
