What attendees say about More to the Story retreats:
“The encouragement I felt from Janna was invaluable. I highly recommend working with Janna to any writer who’s working on a book and feels stuck.” —Molly Katt
“Coaching is DEFINITELY Janna’s jam…straight talk about what I needed to do to keep writing, coupled with belief in me. AMAZING. She has a great and sincere way of validating people as writer, and that is AN AMAZING GIFT! I am so grateful for her.” —Susie Pratt
“I would never have finished my memoir without Janna’s encouragement and editorial expertise. In addition, being part of the More to the Story community means the solitary task of writing is not lonely. I know I have other writers on similar journeys cheering me on.” —Margaret Whitford
“I’m grateful to Janna & her team at MTTS for helping me achieve a real live draft of my memoir. She recognized where I was in the process & offered the encouragement as well as concrete writing suggestions to get me there.” —Lyra Halprin
