Why Have Jill Speak to Your Group?
I want writers to be inspired. I’m an everyday writer who relied on studying the writing craft, participating in writer’s groups, getting and giving critiques, following industry blogs and slogging through years of rejections to eventually become a Publishers Weekly bestselling author with over half a million books sold worldwide. I don’t have an MFA in creative writing or a degree in English, but I did graduate magna cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering, which helps me with time management and organization.
Helping people pursue their dreams is a passion of mine. I’ve been regularly speaking to writer’s groups and women’s groups since 2011. I want to encourage and motivate writers. Our stories are important. Let’s get them out there!
I’m experienced. In addition to fifteen inspirational romance novels with Harlequin™ Love Inspired, my work has appeared in Woman’s World Magazine, Chicken Soup for the Soul: It’s Christmas!, Southern Writers Magazine: Suite T blog, Seekerville, Novel Rocket, Inspired by Life and Fiction, Ladies of Love Inspired, and more. I’ve also blogged for over a dozen years, starting at Blogger and later transitioning to JillKemerer.com/Blog.
I’ve spoken to American Fiction Christian Writers (ACFW-online education) Maumee Valley Romance Authors, Inc. (MVRAI), ACFW Memphis, Central Ohio Fiction Writers (COFW), ACFW Ohio, ACFW Nashville, and Hope Circle Devotional Writers. I’ve also presented at 2018’s Researching the Romance Conference at Bowling Green State University.
My fees are affordable. I’m offering a free hour-long workshop to writer’s groups for a limited time. Contact me about availability.
