ASK-Communications is me, Alison Stephanie Kilian. A journalist turned communications professional, I have long believed in the power of quality storytelling. I've been writing professionally for over ten years.
I have a BA in English from McGill University and an MA in Comparative Literature from the Freie University Berlin. I got my start as an international journalist, writing for Spiegel International and Axel Springer in Berlin.
Upon transitioning to the communications field, I spent two years in Brussels working as the Communications & Media Relations Manager for EFPIA, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries & Associations.
In 2015, I moved to Vienna, Austria, and began my consulting career. Today I continue to craft stories that compel and content that sells through my personalized writing and content creation/consulting services (ghostwriting, copywriting, storytelling).
In addition to having 10+ years of experience, I have the following credentials:
Professional Certificate in Writing for Video Games, University of British Columbia (2022)
M.A. in Comparative Literature, Freie Universität Berlin (2013)
B.A. in English and Cultural Studies, McGill University (2007)
Professional Writing Certificate for PR & Journalism, Georgetown University (2006)
When you work with ASK-Communications, you are working with me directly. I do not outsource content to third parties or content mills to get the job done. I believe that storytelling should be personal—and that you should know the person who is telling your story.
