Karin Pendley Koser is one credit hour shy of receiving her MFA in creative writing many years after earning her bachelor’s degree in journalism/PR. She's found that the process of studying four creative genres, as well as practicing and workshopping two (nonfiction and screenwriting), has given her great respect for those who write and teach for a living.
Karin cut her teeth as a features journalist for WAGA-TV and tourism writer and spokesperson for the state of Georgia. Her work evolved to forming a small consultancy in 2000, which offers video, photography, PR strategy and campaigns and social media. At heart, she's a writer, visual artist and storyteller.
Alison Law is an unapologetic book pusher, author enabler, and host of the Literary Atlanta podcast. She interviews authors who are resident here, who have subject matter ties to the area, or who are visiting metro Atlanta on book tour. She’s also had the privilege of interviewing authors or moderating literary discussions at live events like Writers at the Wrecking Bar, the Beyond Books monthly author series at The Wren’s Nest, and the AJC Decatur Book Festival.
Alison is a proud alumna of Georgia State University, where she earned her master’s degree in English in 2015. A native Tennessean, Alison has a B.A. in communication from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the city where she launched her career as a broadcast journalist at WRCB-TV.
