Author, educator, consultant, speaker
Welcome to my site dedicated to accelerating your writing. I'm a journalist with 25 years in the trade, the former editor of two consumer mags – Time Out and Triple J Mag – and the author of one novel, Cherry Bomb, and two creative non-fiction books, Woman of Substances and Everything Harder Than Everyone Else. as well as the anthology Your Mother Would Be Proud.
In later years I've discovered a real love of teaching, from guest lecturing at universities, to running a course for Writers Victoria, to holding workshops for Avid Reader, The Monthly magazine and more. Most frequently, I run my own workshops and writers groups, and coach writers one on one.
You can join my free Facebook group for writers, in which I share tips, opportunities, newsworthy topics and details of my latest classes.
Lastly, my journalism is kept on a whole 'nother website. If you're not yet exhausted by hyperlinks, it's at www.jennyvalentish.com.
