Jodi is a lightning rod. She gathers up creative electricity and sends it across the wires to everyone in her salons. I’ve never been so inspired in my life.

Jodi has created a warm, wise, and inspired community of writers. Being a part of these salons has taught me how to nurture my writing, and grow it into something beautiful.
