Connect with me...

I love hearing from readers.

First, sign up for my newsletter and mailing list.

I call it JEWEL. Janel's Encouraging Wordful Expression Letter.

My JEWELS (Subscribers) get subscriber only content each month. Along with practical advice for writers, I share coaching openings, blog post links, sneak peaks, freebies, plus new courses and products. You'll read it here first.

Let's be social.

I'm active on each, but they're in order of preference.

Everyone and their mother's second cousin's step-brother's Aunt Bea is on Facebook. You can find daily inspiration and regular live videos. @coachingwithjanel

Find writing inspiration, my garden gnome army, Jeep hair, and other fun moments. I like to remember Happily Ever After in the midst of everyday chaos. @coachingwithjanel

In another life, I blogged about life, DIY, frugality, sewing, and taught fashion design to high schoolers. I still love great dresses and yummy chicken recipes. You can find all my interests, as well as writing ideas, here: @janelpdx

I've been on Twitter since 2008, which feels like half an eternity. You'll find links and announcements about all of my projects here: @janelpdx

Interviews & Speaking

If you would like to interview me for a podcast, video, or an article, shoot me an email. I'm also available on a limited basis to speak at conferences and events. Email [email protected] for more information.

Something else? Advertising, freelance, garden gnome recruiting, or general bibbidi-bobbidi-boo:

I love hearing from writers and read every email!

While I reply to questions as time allows, I can't always get to everyone. That said, sometimes a question is so good it deserves its own article. If you send a question, please know it could end up in a blog post or as coaching material. Either way, I'll make sure you get an answer.
