About Me

BF2C258F-2554-4A05-AE52-30108F3FCE78 2.jpg

Hi, I'm Polly Alice. I'm an author, artist, and speaker. My art and poetry have been published in US newspapers and magazines, most recently in Rattle magazine. I'm the founder and manager of FLYING KETCHUP PRESS. Much of my creative work stems from my award-winning research on the subconscious creative process. 


As an editor, I help people tell their stories. With clear writing about who you are and what you do, you can connect right away with the audience and projects that fit your creative vision. When people understand your vision, they can take part in it. My specialty is getting the long story short and making the short story hit its mark with full impact.


People contact me when they want to make a picture book, anthology, or literary project to highlight the stories connecting people. I lead writing workshops, write artist and business bios, and website copy. People often like to work with me because I'm also an artist, editor, and illustrator, so I can give feedback from many angles and help create a finished project. I have a master's degree in writing for children and young adults from Hamline University. You might have seen me out and about. I  have been a full-time visual artist, poet, author and speaker in Kansas City since 2015.


My favorite thing is to tell stories-- other people's, my own-- maybe yours.
