Jennifer McGuiggan

Jennifer (Jenna) McGuiggan is a writer and editor who lives in the rolling hills of southwestern Pennsylvania and longs for the sea. She is the purveyor of fine writing and editing at The Word Cellar, her freelance practice where left brain meets right brain, whimsy shakes hands with practicality, and communication is considered a sacred science and time-honored art. She writes and edits for a wide variety of clients and publications and has covered everything from nuclear reactors and school lunches to pet care and entrepreneurship. Jenna is the creator and editor of Lanterns: A Gathering of Stories, a collaborative book of prose, poetry, and photography about women in creative community. She is slated to receive her Masters of Fine Arts degree in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts in the summer of 2011. Jenna invites you to join her in The Word Cellar, which she envisions as a cozy, stone-walled chamber filled with twinkle lights, shelves of stories, nooks of books, and plush armchairs perfect for sharing your tale.
