Kudos From Writers
Jackie’s not just a writer or editor. She’s a reader. And the sort of reader who reminds a writer that his duty is to the reader first and to his own hangups and sacred moo-cows second. She knows that stories have starts and ends and the good ones have peaks and valleys and buckets of conflict. She also gives it to you straight–without making you feel like a complete idiot…Every writer should be lucky enough to have someone like her around.
From working with Jackie, I gained a tremendous amount of support for my novel in progress. Before I enlisted her as a writing coach, I was feeling a little shaky about the value of my story. There are so many great books out there already and new ones published every day. Jackie helped me gain the confidence I needed to engage with the writing process rest assured that the story I have to tell is indeed valuable to the world. I was more productive than I’ve ever been on my own. With guided structure and accountability, I made some major breakthroughs in the writing process. I highly recommend Jackie Cangro for any other writer out there struggling to overcome internal roadblocks.
I got lucky when Jackie agreed to be my editor. She was extremely positive with her suggestions and always available for my questions. I would highly recommend her to any writer who wants their work to be the best possible.
You were clear on the corrections and explanations. The description tags were so helpful and cleared up a lot of possible confusion; thank you because you did not have to do that. You did a wonderful and meticulous job. Money well spent and earned by you. I learned some English along the way!
I have never taken a writing class that outlines the elements of creating a good piece of writing as this one does; provocative content helped me to look deeper and think about my writing; a good learning experience.
The quality of the critiques—supportive of good work with helpful suggestions for improvement. I loved the image journal practice and will make that part of my new routine!
The highlights for me were the practical writing prompts. I’ve started writing my first short story. This class has given me the tools to know how to being the process and the confidence to try.
