John Fenn

Welcome to my page!

  
In addition to my own writing, I work with private clients. 

  
I can help you jump-start your new play or screenwriting project, and edit or revise your existing work.  Also, I can help you write a speech, or ghostwrite it for you. 


My focus will be on helping you realize your own vision, not to impose my ideas on your work.  This is not a how-to-write experience.  It is a process of midwifing the work within you to fruition.  Contact me, describe your project, and we will determine if I can be of help.  Then I will give you an estimate of costs.


I have written 20 produced plays and 6 screenplays.  Currently I am working on two musicals and preparing a novel for imminent publication.


I bring to my -- and your -- work years of experience as a teacher and writing coach.  I have mentored play/screen writers at New York’s Circle in the Square Theatre School and in graduate schools at three Universities, including my present faculty position in the graduate school at Hamline University in St. Paul.


WHAT STUDENTS/CLIENTS ARE SAYING

 "I walked into … an office with an essay that I had written about the social status of my generation in the modern day world … you saw the potential of this essay and helped me revise and edit it.  This piece then became my college entrance essay and has influenced the direction of my life ever since. You have changed the trajectory of my life … You are a living legend."

—Karen L. Palmen
