Unleash Your Story
Welcome you wondrous creature. You with your story caught in your throat, on the edge of your lips, tingling your fingertips into sharper prints. You who knows words=medicine. You who can’t wait a moment longer to use and loose your voice—that wild, astonishing music that belongs to you alone. May you and your story find sanctuary here.

While writing my memoir, I reached a point where I was searching for a story editor. Jen Violi came highly recommended by some close friends. After our first conversation, I knew Jen was the one to help bring my story to life. Before I hired her, my story was "all over the place" and I felt a bit untethered. During our work together, she helped me focus on the story that mattered and needed to be told. Through the entire process Jen was supportive, fun and helped me power through many tough days of writing. I couldn't have finished without her. She nurtured and supported me during emotional times and pushed me when I needed it. I am so proud of my memoir and much of that is due to Jen's direction!
