Poetry Manuscript Consulting Services

 

Are you looking for in-depth, honest feedback on your poetry? Well, I’m here to help!


I have over a dozen years' experience teaching creative writing in higher education, in editing poetry for literary journals, and in editing book length manuscripts. I've published several collections of poetry, as well as individual poems and poetry book reviews in numerous literary journals.


"Jennifer Jean took a pile of about 60 of my poems (many done in her workshop and published) and helped birth it into a gorgeous, cohesive manuscript. The poems illuminate one another; I’m ready to submit it!" ~Jennifer Martelli, author of Apostrophe
