I’m Alison, the host of Storytelling Saga, the podcast that shares stories, which I launched in September 2018. I discuss the art of storytelling from my favorite TV shows, books, movies and much more. I also share my own original short stories and interview special guests in creative fields that include writers, directors, artists, actors, etc.
I’m currently pursuing a career in writing for television, specifically half-hour comedy. I’ve taken courses and writing workshops taught by Jacob Krueger, Jerry Perzigian, Jen Grisanti, Ron Marz and Brent Forrester. I’m also a member of Storyteller Academy founded by Arree Chung, where I’ve joined a community of children’s book authors and illustrators with the goal of getting published and growing my author brand.
In addition to writing several original half-hour comedy pilots, I’ve written spec scripts for The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, New Girl, BoJack Horseman, American Dad, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, A.P. Bio, Girls5eva and more. My Modern Family and BoJack Horseman scripts each placed as a quarter-finalist in the Big Break Contest and the Scriptapalooza TV competition. I also received an honorable mention for a Creative Writing Award for an original one-act play I wrote called The Things We Learned in Detention. My latest pilot, Good or Bad, placed as a quarter-finalist in the Big Break Contest and ranks in the top 22% of discoverable projects on Coverfly.
I love the power of storytelling and how it connects us all. I hope you’ll enjoy this podcasting journey with me and that Storytelling Saga will inspire you to share your own stories with the world.
As always, write what you love. ❤
