Allison is is not only an expert editor, she is an outstanding mentor, who has the unique ability to coax the best article from an author Her natural inquisitiveness and professionalism made her a pleasure to work with.

I published over 20 articles with Allison at Reuters. Her instincts and judgments never led me astray. As a result, I was able to build a platform and reach a far larger audience. She created many opportunities for meand other Wilson Center scholarsto think beyond the ivory tower and become public intellectuals.

Allison is that rare editor who knows how to shape economic coverage. She’s skilled at helping economics writers find a timely news angleto gain urgency and a much wider audience. She helps writers avoid jargon and explain complicated and often dense topics in plain but compelling language.

Her typical edit helps readers to see what a policy change or financial trend means to them - and why they should care.

Allison Silver’s skills as an editor are peerless. She has a record of working with important thinkers who want to communicate with the larger world. Her talent is to rescue academic writers from turgid prose.

She has a gimlet eye for relevance. She follows 'the conversation' about important public issues in print and online. She knows what’s needed to move 'the conversation' forward, whether the subject is politics, science, art, world affairs or popular culture.

Allison is that exceptional editor who improves your work while making you feel it's still your own and says just what you wanted to say--only far more effectively.

She taught me how to write about the law in ways that were not only informative, but engaging and accuratethree difficult things to combine in legal reporting. Allison understands complex subjects and why they're important. But she also knows what will matter to a general audience and how to engage readers while informing them.

For professors and writers wishing to influence policy or make a splash as “public intellectuals,” a quiver of op-eds is essential.

Allison has an eagle eye for what makes an arresting lead, a crucial ingredient in a strong op-ed, and she possesses unerring good judgment about how to structure an argument. There are iron rules that distinguish saleable op-eds from those that won't attract a nibble. Allison knows them all.
