Meet Jennifer

Poet ~ Educator ~ Coach

Lit-amorous, I'm on the perpetual quest to find the next amazing poem to read, savor and share. (Sound like you too? Subscribe to my newsletter, Poetry Inspired)

My love of poetry led me to start A World in a Line Writing Workshops to aspiring & established creative writers. I love mild winters, anything Jane Austen, & the raucous coast of Sonoma County.
