Welcome to Allison Renner Writes

Allison Renner is a writer, editor, ghostwriter-for-hire, librarian, and photographer. She has been blogging since 2008, freelance writing since 2009, editing since 2010, and reviewing books since 2013.

While fiction writing is her passion, she loves workshopping and editing the works of others, from fiction to academic papers, and everything in between. She currently works as an editor for Flash Fiction Magazine and the Publicity & Reviews Manager for Split/Lip Press.

Allison Renner’s first book, Library Volunteers: A Practical Guide for Librarians, was published by Rowman & Littlefield on May 15, 2019.

This work was inspired by Allison’s history as a volunteer for various nonprofits, but especially by her library background. After starting in libraries as a volunteer herself, she has worked as a teen services librarian in a large public library system, and as a school librarian in public and private elementary schools. She has used volunteers in all of these settings, and is grateful for the chance to help others learn how they can maximize volunteers’ efforts.
