Clients Have Written For

Life’s ups and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine our values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.
Marsha Sinetar

Jen Grisanti is at the master class level. She has impeccable industry credentials, a sharp intellect, and a compelling personal vision–all of which she combines in her unique and results proven approach to writing and craft.

John Mason, Film Commissioner, Hawaii
I had the fortune of discovering Jennifer Grisanti Consulting just before submitting my pilot for a writing program. Needless to say, I walked away from our meeting not only with great feedback, but also a unique structural point of view that I will forever filter my future projects through. She was amazingly easy to talk to, keyed in on every facet of story, and able to break down the story structure into an equation that is a one size fits all.
Joshua Faulkner, Writer

What makes Jen Grisanti such a great teacher isn’t that she teaches you to ‘write what you know’; it’s that she teaches you to know who you are. And that’s the greatest lesson any writer can learn.

Benjamin Raab , Writer/Co-Executive Producer, The Flash
Jen coached me through a script that helped me land a top agent and a gig writing for a big network sitcom. Because of her, I never start breaking story on a pilot until I figure out my main character’s dilemma. I never blow an act without thinking ‘is this an obstacle to the goal?’ Her methods and terminology work. They get me meetings and jobs. Simple as that.
Isaac Gonzalez , Story Editor, Legends of Chamberlain Heights

A lot of instructors preach ‘write what you know,’ but Jen’s method is more ‘write what you feel.’ She recognizes that every writer has unique experiences from which to draw, and she helps you access those experiences so you can turn them into stories that have a beating heart on the page.

Rick Muirragui , Executive Producer - Suits
Jen’s unique and inspired contribution to the TV Writers Studio went above and beyond anything we imagined, both as a teacher and as a professional mentor . Jen was a crowd favorite for the hundreds of attendees – highly professional, motivated, warm, she is a joy to work with. We can’t wait to get her back in Australia again!
Annie MacArthur, Producer, Epiphany International Artists P/L
Jen Grisanti was an absolute godsend this season of Writers on the Verge. Her warmth and insight in the note-giving process led to constructive workshops, and amazing scripts. Jen has an incredible eye for story, character and dialogue. She’s an incredible lady who genuinely cares about shaping each piece to its fullest potential.
Erika Kennair, Creator of NBC's Writers on the Verge Program/Director of Development Sci-Fi Channel

Jen Grisanti gave me the tools to mine my own experiences and translate them into any genre. She has a rare expertise in crafting story with both emotional depth and efficient structure… And what’s more, she’s an ace at teaching others how to do it.

Gina Monreal, Co-Executive Producer - NCIS
