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 got my start as an international journalist, writing for Spiegel International and Axel Springer in Berlin, before transitioning to the communication field. I then 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 writing for a living full time. Today, I continue to help others tell their stories through my ghostwriting, copywriting, and storytelling services.

In addition to having 10+ years of experience, I have the following credentials:

  • M.A. Comparative Literature, Freie Universität Berlin (2013)

  • B.A. in English and Cultural Studies, McGill University (2007)

  • Professional Writing Certificate, PR & Journalism, Georgetown University (2006)
