I'm super excited to announce that I'm now offering a critique service for children's writers. 

Critiques include an in-depth overall look and a detailed line-by-line analysis of your picture book manuscript (or 10 pages of a longer work).  I'll point out strengths and weaknesses of plot and evaluate your use of character, setting, and voice.

Here's what people are saying about Jenni's critiques...

"Jenni's Critiques are thoughtful, thorough, and encouraging. She never fails to offer plenty of useful food for thought to help take a manuscript to the next level." - Diana Murray

“It was a treat to read Jenni’s critiques of my picture book stories. It’s maybe because of her honest and supportive way of giving comments, sprinkled with a dash of good humor. But one thing is for sure—Her suggestions always help advance the story.” - Anne Speirs

"Jenni's critiques provided the clarity I needed to move my story forward. She addressed my theme, plot, arc, and word count with honest, helpful comments. She is excellent at suggestions for the rhythmic language necessary for memorable picture books." - Penny Klostermann
