Hi there! My name is Alison Karlene Hodgins. I’m a Canadian travel writer, freelance journalist, editor and blogger from Grande Prairie, Alberta. I’m currently completing the manuscript for my first memoir, tentatively titled It Takes Backbonethrough the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction at King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I built this website as a centralized location to share my awards and scholarships, upcoming events, and a little more about me and my memoir. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact page. I look forward to getting to know you, too!
