Comments & Reviews


“Jesse L. Kwak knows all writers are striving to tell their truth and her new book was written with your truth in mind. This book—should I say writing companion—is a great gift to any writer. What I loved about this book is it felt like a living text, fluid and flexible, something that was explicitly designed to meet any writer where they are and to empower them. The voice is whip smart, friendly, inspiring, and wise. Writing is a journey and this book is the compass that will help you find your truth.”
