Book Coaching

It’s time to write your book!

Whether you’re a seasoned writer or someone who’s always wanted to try your hand at writing a book…

I can help guide you toward your creative project’s dreams.

Studies show that 81% of people want to write a book someday.

But of all the people who start a book, 97% never finish.

Whether you are one of the 3% who finished your draft—congrats, rockstar!!—or one of the majority of folks still dream-planning your story or memoir or poetry collection in your head while working at your day job—

I am here to help!

My decade+ experience teaching creative writing, being Editor-in-Chief of a lit journal + Acquisitions Editor at a lit press, as well as writing and publishing my own ten books across genres (including novels, short fiction, poetry, YA fiction, and screenplays) have all led me to this moment—

to be YOUR coach.

I will be your biggest cheerleader and fiercest advocate, shining a light on your creative journey so that you never need wander in the dark literary woods.

I can help you develop your ideas, hone your craft, edit your manuscript, and learn how to succeed in the publishing world. If you need a developmental edit of your current manuscript or proofreading before you send it out, I can help you polish your book to its brightest shine to send into the world!

Wherever you are in your manuscript’s journey, I will help you reach the next level.

Testimonials from clients:

Working with Jenn on my manuscript *Banished* was like going to book therapy—she pointed out strengths and pushed me to see some hard truths. She showed me how to understand my own manuscript better so I knew how to improve it. In addition to marvelous, meticulous suggestions, often on a line-by-line level, Jenn offered me a powerful vision of where the book could go and how to get it there. She recommended books to read for inspiration and sent me craft articles catered to areas I needed to work on the most. I learned how to make the book and my writing life more powerful. When I’d spent some time revising based on her suggestions, the book was finally truly ready—and accepted for publication at the first place I submitted it! What kind of magic is that!?

I highly recommend Jenn Givhan as an editor/writing coach. I sent her a mess of over one hundred pages of poetry I’d written since my last book was published, and she helped me hone it down to a strong collection, shaped it into a beautiful volume with organic unity I hadn’t previously seen, and even line-edited and offered suggestions. If you’re looking for any writing/editing help, she’s the real deal!
