MFAVN Podcast: Ben Zackheim talks to Alison Paul and Nathan Fox

Ben Zackheim of MFAVN had a chance to sit down with Alison Paul (MFAVN alum) and Nathan Fox (MFAVN Chair) to discuss her experience at the School of Visual Arts, her career in kids books, and the importance of making connections. Alison’s job as a teacher at UConn meant she had to juggle her job with an MFA program. How was that experience? Listen to our podcast to find out!

Alison’s stop-motion animations have been shown in Film Festivals around the World. She’s published two children’s picture books with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, THE CROW (A Not So Scary Story), and SUNDAY LOVE. Her third book, THE PLAN, will be out this Fall.

Alison was a delightful student, with endless energy and the talent to tell moving, beautiful stories. Scroll down to see a gallery of her work.
