J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon.
All By My Shelf and The Writers' Community is a way for me to share my education and help other KidLit and YA writers explore their ideas. I share bi-weekly writing exercises, interviews with upcoming and recently published authors (as they become available), and host a Discord server full of amazing writers looking to publish their equally amazing work. The podcast is called All By My Shelf because we do a great deal of work alone as writers, but community is equally important. Feedback and friendship go hand in hand and I hope you join us and get to watch your work grow.
