It's time to share your story.

Whether you want to write a short story or essay, publish a novel, or share your personal story, it's time.

I am a writing coach and creative accountability partner, here to ensure your creative vision becomes reality. All coaching services are based your individual goals and experience. Together, we will determine a realistic timeline and set goals that make sense for you and your lifestyle. We will clarify ideas and silence the inner critic. We will get words to page.

My clients have written and published short story collections, novels, and nonfiction. They have won awards, secured residencies, completed legacy projects, and cultivated daily writing practices that have enabled them to find ongoing creative inspiration and drive.

I am eager to hear about your vision. I work closely with a limited number of creatives each year so that I can craft customized, holistic services, so please let me know a little more about yourself and your goals by filling out the form below.

New clients: Connect to sign up for a workshop or schedule a 30-minute phone or video consultation.

More about my background as a writer, and my philosophy as a coach are hereI look forward to hearing from you!

Working with Jen was a delightful process, she confidently navigated me through developmental editing to ready my book for pitching to publishers. She listened well and understood my goals and interests. It was such a pleasure working with Jen and I look forward to working with her again on my next book project. I highly recommend Jen if you are writing a book and want to partner with a supportive and knowledgeable guide.

"If you're serious about growing as a writer, you should certainly consider hiring Jen Knox as your writing coach.

Think about it: there are few genuine resources for writers who struggle to conquer their shortcomings and improve their craft.  Online articles typically consist of quick tips with no real depth or wisdom.  Writing books provide plenty of general advice, but don't typically help to identify your specific writing issues, or provide clear steps to develop new approaches.  College classes and writing groups suffer because members generally focus on improving their own work, rather than providing quality feedback on yours.

Though I hold a BA in Creative Writing and a minor in Playwriting from a reputable writing program, Jen's coaching has been a great resource for me.  Her no-nonsense approach, sage advice, thoughtful feedback, and considerable knowledge of all things writing has truly helped me exceed my writing goals. 

If you're ready to take your writing to the next step, I recommend giving her a call today."



"Jen coached me through the completion of my collection of short stories. She is a great teacher and very precise. With her positive feedback and encouragement, I was able to finish the book. I highly recommend her coaching services for new writers."
