Alissa Wilkinson

Alissa Wilkinson worked as a business analyst on Wall Street, edited a technical magazine at New York University, founded The Curator, and developed programs and resources at International Arts Movement before accepting a full-time faculty position teaching writing at The King’s College in New York City. She has been associate editor of Comment since 2008, and her articles and film criticism have appeared in a variety of publications including Christianity Today, Paste, The Globe & Mail, WORLD, Relevant, and Prism.

Alissa earned a B.S. at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an M.A. at New York University, and will begin working toward an M.F.A. from Seattle Pacific University this August. She was recently interviewed in Christianity Today and the IVCF Emerging Scholars Network blog, and appears in the video accompanying Makoto Fujimura’s Four Holy Gospels illuminated Bible project.

Along with her husband, Tom, Alissa lives in a tiny apartment high above the Brooklyn treetops and attends The Village Church in Greenwich Village. They enjoy good cheese and moderately obscure movies. Alissa buys too many books.
