J (Jason) Milligan is a freelance writer who is one of the staff script writers on Sesame Street as of Season 40. Prior to that, he served as creative director and head writer for Sesame Workshop's interactive division, primarily writing and designing content and games for Sesamestreet.org, as well as for various computer games. He generally served as voice director for these projects.

Milligan also assisted Caroll Spinney in writing his autobiography The Wisdom of Big Bird. He spoke about the unique assignment in an interview: "The writing was challenging on that book because Caroll has a rather non-linear style of storytelling. It makes for great dinner conversation, but can be hard to form into chapters. But working with him was a pleasure. We’d meet every week at his favorite Italian restaurant, have some wine and risotto and he’d share his life with me, these incredible stories." [1]

Outside of the street, Milligan wrote the 2005 novel Jack Fish and has been featured on NPR's All Things Considered.
