I’m Jen - a writer, teacher and mama living in New Zealand. I write about creativity, motherhood and living an intentional life. My goal in my work is to share my life as authentically and openly as possible in the hope that it will inspire and help others.
I use Patreon as a platform to share notes about my life as a creative and a mama, and also my progress with my writing projects. This Patreon community is also where I run a weekly writing group, offering insights, writing inspiration, exercises and writing prompts to help you develop as a writer. If you're a writer (or would-be writer!) you might enjoy joining our writing group.
Currently I'm writing a novel and various essays. My essays are about motherhood, creativity, intentional living, among other things. My novel is about a woman trying to do whatever it takes to get her boyfriend to propose to her – but after all that, is it what she really wants?
I will always offer my writing and ideas for free on my blog because I love it. But it takes a little more concentrated time and effort to write a book and essays, and also run the writing group - especially as a sleep-deprived mama! Your contribution will go towards:
- Helping me pay for babysitting to carve out the necessary time and mental space to write
- Funding the necessary aspects of self-publishing, like proof-reading and cover design
- Supporting the ongoing free writing on the blog
In return, you will get access to various rewards.
Thanks again for coming to check out my page, and for any support you can offer. I'm incredibly grateful.
