I'm Allison.

Allison keltner, Freelance Writer in San Diego

Words are my thing.

And since many people—many super bright, awesome, talented people—can't say that, I love putting my skills to their use.

I help small business owners, creative professionals, and nonprofits share their stories with the world—saving them a ton of time and helping them reach their people.

Do you dread putting together your email newsletter because it takes half a day to write, edit, format, test, and schedule?

Are you getting crow's feet from squinting at that damn cursor whenever you try to write a blog post?

Does your website make you cringe because the copy is outdated or incomplete or just not right?

Wouldn't you rather spend more time working with your clients and creating awesome stuff?


If you said YES to any of that...

I want to be your new best friend.

I've got a B.A. in English from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and over seven years experience writing for in-house marketing departments, creative agencies, nonprofits, and small businesses.

I'm trained in both creative and technical writing (and editing!) and have plenty of on-the-job, learn-by-doing experience writing for the web and other media.

And I believe that almost all problems can be solved with some combination of a trail run, Mexican food, and margaritas. And donuts.

Did someone say newsletter?

Because I've got one. And it's not lame or annoying. I promise. Want in?
