Testimonials From Past Students 

"With Jaye’s encouragement chapters flew out. Yeah, there were deadlines and all that; however, they were a pleasure to meet. Let me say that again, I looked forward to them. But what was best: her ability to understand. She got what I meant and she saw the potential. She coaxed the best I had at the time and helped me understand how to make it better on the next go-round." -Robin 

"Writing is hard. Jaye makes it easier! She mentored me throughout the development of my first novel. I would not be where I am today without her guidance and tough love. She supports each writer’s unique process and helps them learn to use it to their benefit rather than trying to mold it into something else. If you’re trying to hone your craft or simply need help getting started, I highly recommend Jaye Wells!” -Dana
