Alison Downs

MA English & Creative Writing - Nonfiction, Class of 2015

"SNHU has been a great experience because it allows me to work exclusively when I have the availability."

I'm a soon to be 30-year-old online student studying English, with a concentration in creative writing and fiction. I work as a senior producer during the day, which sometimes means I'm directing small video production projects, but usually means I am copyediting computer programming textbooks, marketing copy or scripts. I'm currently seeking representation for my first novel, which brought me to SNHU, in a roundabout way.

SNHU has been a great experience because it allows me to work exclusively when I have the availability. The deadlines are easy to meet, even when everyday life gets a little hectic. I currently have a BFA in Creative Writing, and turned to SNHU after realizing I would need more experience if I eventually wanted to get a different job in editing or publishing.
