About Jessica Conoley

In 2010, I drove halfway across the US to a research institute and spent 2 days taking tests.  The test results said, I should go into writing, editing, or disaster management.  Turns out the science was right.

I love stories.  Writing them, editing them, reading them. And, as the writer whose career started with science, it should come as no surprise that I love writing science fantasy.

Six years spent as managing editor of a literary magazine confirmed I loved editing as much as I love writing.  But the surprising part is that I adore everything about the business side of creative careers. Most of my creative friends look nauseous when the words "marketing" or "book-keeping" come up, and I'm all, "Tell me more." 

I've built my career in that unique Bermuda triangle of writing, editing, & businessing. In 2021, I launched The Creative's Apprentice to "simplify business so you have the brain space to create."

Patreon is where I share fiction work. (Unless a publisher is paying me, of course.) It's also the place I:

  • Pilot TCA workshops that demystify, simplify, & systematize business practices for creatives
  • Expand my on-line creative community through virtual co-working sessions
  • Sharing super-secret surprises only for Patrons

Thank you for helping me connect creatives and give them the tools they need to get their stories, art, and all other things fantastical into the world, and, thank you for becoming a part of my story.
