Allison Jarvis is a college student at the University of Maine at Farmington working towards a BFA in Creative Writing along with a minor in video and theater. During her time in high school, she studied Video Production at the Sanford Regional Technical Center and won two Tommy awards at the Sanford International Film Festival and a Golden Globe at the Portland Youth Film Festival. She has also won several Literary Achievement Awards for a creative writing event she has participated in every year since elementary school. She is studying creative writing in the hopes to one day write and publish a series of young adult novels. During her spare time (when she’s not reading), she combines her love for video and literature by uploading videos to her book review channel, Chapter Zero. While fantasy and weird fiction is her go-to, she hopes to learn more about all the different forms of story-telling that there are. Allison will be joining our team as our Media Arts Intern.
