Hello there, writers!

My name is Jessica Lawlor and I am the new managing editor of The Write Life.

I’m documenting this journey in a series called (juicy income breakdowns included, if you’re into that sort of thing). I wear *many* hats: communications professional, consultant, blogger, writer, editor, yoga teacher, adjunct professor…the list goes on. I’ve cobbled all of my passions into a career.
