Words of praise

Anyone who has read Jennifer’s work can tell she’s a gifted writer – refreshing, perceptive, precise. She brings the same qualities to her teaching with rich, insightful lessons that encourage students to explore different ways of writing, all in an informal setting that allows them to open up and have fun. As a result, each writing session effectively stretches into the space between the lessons – impacting the writing life, and beyond.

Vivian, Summer Writing Camp

Taking a course in a museum is so unique! I really, really enjoyed going into the exhibits and using them as bounce-off points for inspiration and ideas. The class where Jennifer introduced Yoga while we were in an exhibit was wonderful.

 

Dannii, What's Your Story, Beit Hatfutsot

Since working with Jennifer, in her classes and as a private writing coach, I have been more creative and more productive than ever before. She pushes and challenges me in a loving and respectful way to do the best.
