    With each lesson, there was so much beautiful inspiration, practical writing ideas, prompts, stories, motivation and beauty. I was looking for a writing nudge and received so much more in return. My journal was filled from writing exercises and stories. Jenna has the most beautiful way of presenting to others that writing should be a way of life, she gently guides you to what is already inside. Thank you, Jenna, for showing me that writing in my life is truly a life ritual!"

A note from the founder...

  • Jenna McGuiggan, Founder, The Word Cellar
    Nearly every writer I know—at every level of the craft—wants to write (and publish) more pages, to have more joy in the writing process, and to create deeper connections to other writers. I created The Word Cellar Writers Guild to bring us all together to get more of what we want in our writing lives.
