"Blackbird Studio is a literary sanctuary where Jennifer Lauck shares her deep knowledge of craft while supporting writers in all stages of development. I joined the studio in the summer of , and it continues to be a haven of creativity, support, and joy. Jennifer is a gifted writer and teacher who generously shares her own writing process and humbly learns beside the readers and writers she has brought together in community."
"After so many writing groups that focused on prompts, finding a workshop that supported the long-term project, felt like I’d finally landed. From Jennifer’s teachings, I feel I have truly grown as a writer. Even more important, though, is the sense I have of how to craft the story. I didn’t appreciate for how difficult this is to the overall work. Through an analysis of well-known works along with books on craft, Jennifer teaches how to apply the lessons she presents to our own work. Her desire to see us all grow as writers comes through in her classes, her individual comments on our work, and her ongoing encouragement to keep pushing ourselves."
"I joined this writing studio in the summer of , I was very hesitant but pleasantly pleased right from the start. I truly believe that every human being has a story to tell, yet so many are afraid. I've always wanted to write but didn't know where to start. This studio pulls together aspects of real life, novels, memoir, excellent productive feedback and so much more. Every class that I have taken has been affordable and genuine, no strings attached. I am more confident in my writing and that is because of Blackbird Studio. Jennifer Lauck has created a safe space for contemplating writing and discussing literature. This studio is a breath of fresh air for writers. It has become a writing community that only gets more fabulous as time goes on. I am honored to be a student of Blackbird Studios."
"Blackbird Studio is a writing school and community for those who want to up-level their composition and surround themselves with the energy and support of others doing the same. Whether you've been scribing every day since the age of five or simply have a story that needs to be told, there's a place for you, wherever you are along the dial. Jennifer Lauck, the studio's founder, is the author of The NY Times best-selling memoir "Blackbird." She's been analyzing the craft of writing for over thirty years. She strives each day to ensure her students are sharpening their skills and meeting their goals. Since I joined the studio three years ago, my understanding of what goes into successful story-telling has exploded, and continues to expand, while Jennifer's teachings build on each other. My fellow classmates are full of encouragement, and I learn almost as much from our discussions of their writing as I do from that of the published works in the curriculum. I highly recommend Blackbird Studio."
"I have encountered a lot of people who claim to help writers, but mostly they just want to charge thousands of dollars to tell you how hard it is to get published. Jennifer cares more about investing in her writers then anything she'll ever get back monetarily. She is truly generous in how she shows up for each and every writer who commits to learning and putting in the work. I have heard writers from studio read and have honestly had the thought, "that person should keep their day job." Three months later, because of Jennifer's mentoring, they read again and it brings me to tears, the words are so beautiful. Jennifer has taught me to show up, on the good days and the bad days, and believe in the power of words on a page."
