Beginner writers thrive when they feel like their thoughts are worth something and worth exploring. In the short four months that I have worked with Jen, she has been one of the most accepting and encouraging people I have ever met! She is committed to community and creativity. Jen makes your soul feel safe enough to peek out of it’s shell and say hello. She knew exactly what us newbie writers needed to be brave—acceptance. If you get a chance to interact with this lovely human being, take it now! She is a gem; a bright and valuable friend.
