I’m Allison Alexander and this is my newsletter! Welcome! I’m a writer, editor, artist, gamer, and chronic illness mage (I don’t have the HP to be a warrior). I have ten years of experience as an editor, and I adore sci-fi and fantasy stories. My newsletter explores writing techniques used in beloved movies, books, and video games so we can improve our storytelling.
