Alison Law

Alison Law is a member of the AW75 planning committee, a natural fit given her other roles as an unapologetic book pusher, author enabler, and host of the Literary Atlanta podcast. She interviews authors who are resident in metro Atlanta, who have subject matter ties to the city, or who are visiting the area on book tour. Over two different years, Law served as associate program director of the AJC Decatur Book Festival, one of the country’s largest independent book festivals. She volunteers on the festival’s programming committee. She’s served on advisory boards for the Decatur Writers Studio and the Georgia Center for the Book and participated in the 2018 Arts Leaders of Metro Atlanta (ALMA) training program.

Law is a proud alumna of Georgia State University, where she earned her master’s degree in English in 2015. She helped Georgia State launch the Lost Southern Voices Festival in 2016 and has taught writing and literature at Georgia State University Perimeter College. In her roles as a professional writer, publicist, and marketing and media consultant, Law has represented authors, publishers, agencies, and other professionals in the publishing industry.
