Hey! I'm Alison Marcotte.
I'm a writer and editor in the Chicago area. I graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in journalism, and currently work at a digital marketing agency in the Chicago suburbs.
As well as helping businesses grow and tell their story, I'm passionate about book publishing. I currently freelance proofread and edit for Sourcebooks, Skyhorse Publishing, and Chicago Review Press. I'm a member of the Chicago Writers Association (CWA), Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), and Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and love writing picture books and short stories.
When I'm not writing or reading, I'm often listening to some kind of podcast, exploring new cities, going for a run, or hanging out with my dog, Maddie — my co-working buddy, exercise pal, and fellow food enthusiast.
