In her 26+ years of writing experience, she has penned everything from non-fiction articles (during her tenure on the editorial staff of multiple magazines) to scripts that have been described by industry professionals across North America as “one of the best I’ve ever seen” and “nearly flawless.” A top finalist in a comic book script competition run by Stan Lee himself, Willow is also a skilled transmedia writer, creating material for comics, digital novels, television and film.

She manages and coordinates both film projects and live events, having produced sizzle reels, live concerts, talent meet & greet events, and variety shows.

It is an honor to have the opportunity to recommend Willow Polson on both a professional and personal level. She is one of the most dedicated, hard working, and loyal people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Beyond her work ethic lies her most endearing (and compelling) quality: passionate. She is passionate about what she does, who she does it with, and what the outcome is not only expected to be, but what she believes it could be beyond expectations. She is a dedicated team player always looking forward to productive collaboration, but she is also extremely successful when required to take on a project on an individual level. Her time with The Access Agency was not only exciting for our organization, but also for her personally.
During her tenure, Willow was the co-lead Account Executive who worked hand-in-hand with television executives, producers, and talent on one of the top network TV shows on any network at the time. Her passionate focus on what the show (and its message) could deliver to fans at a very intimate level helped drive much of our tactical implementation, while also positively impacting the overall strategy. Her personal and team efforts led to a very exciting and successful fan-centric program that helped engage, motivate, and inspire Heroes fans with the idea that "there is a Hero in each of us."
I would highly recommend Willow for any role that requires attention to detail, contribution to an overall plan, and passionate pursuit of its objectives.
Executive Director, Independent Web Series Creators of Canada
Willow Polson is a rare commodity: she is talented, passionate, earnest, dependable, and has an extraordinary work ethic; but more importantly – Willow is the modern day standard bearer for your fans, inciting them to a fever pitch, and leading them across the channels of your property. Willow truly cares for her work, the projects she is on, and the audience like no one else. She has high standards and gets shit done, and on a personal note, I would trust Willow with any budget and even my car keys.
Producer/Screenwriter, Frisky (feature film)
Willow is incredibly thorough and detail-oriented in her work. Her flexibility, capability and can-do attitude has contributed greatly to make shooting "Frisky" (feature film) an enjoyable and relatively smooth process! Willow is an absolute pleasure to have on set.
SAG-AFTRA Member, Character Actor
As one of the talents that the fans have been interested in, I have worked with Willow many times on numerous entertainment projects, including fan relations for NBC-TV series at Comic-Con San Diego. She's detail-oriented and a self starter, reliable and on the ball. Willow knows what she's doing! Highly recommended.
Willow is a force of nature! She is a talented and reliable member of the industry. She is motivated and strives to put out her best work at all times. I have every confidence in her professionalism, drive and dedication to her craft.
Television Writer and Producer
Willow is a self-starting writer providing content, copy editing services and more. She's enthusiastic and determined. I love her work!
Willow has proven herself to be a solid writer and contributor to SciFi4Me.com with her TV show recaps and related articles. She has an accessible style that appeals to a general audience.
She has also been pro-active in seeking out new opportunities to interact with genre professionals on behalf of SciFi4Me -- reaching out to authors and producers for interviews and set visits. Plus, she's one of the more active brainstormers among the group.
She's reliable and can work within a deadline. I would not hesitate to recommend Willow for a writing assignment.
Willow Polson's sharp eye for detail was the first thing I noticed about her work. Everything she pointed out in my screenplay ("JESSY") was important.
Willow's love of fine storytelling makes her a solid writer, an astute reader, and a natural collaborator with... oh yeah... a heart of gold.
