Jennifer Wolfe is a writer, facilitator, business owner, and community leader who’s been helping to facilitate change for people and organizations for the past 25 years. She’s also been keeping a journal since the age of 10.
A journalist by training and a rabble rouser by nature, she’s the founder and executive director of Women Writing for (a) Change® Jacksonville. Through her work in the community, she attempts to leverage her skills to help others who want to use writing as a tool for their own personal growth, creative expression, and self-directed change. She also uses it as a way to create more conscious, connected communities.
In addition to holding regular classes at her home, Jennifer conducts many programs in the community to ensure writing circles are accessible to a wide, diverse audience. She’s especially pleased to facilitate writing circles for incarcerated women at the Community Transition Center. She also hosts two arts shows a year in her historic home featuring many local women artists. Last year her organization produced an annual anthology of local women’s voices, continuing a publishing tradition that was started by poets at this church some 30 years ago.
Jennifer’s been a member of this church since 2005, serving on the ministerial search committee, the religious services committee, and as a worship associate. A social entrepreneur and a ukulele fan, she’s also reared two children, kept a journal, written a blog, started a Happiness Project, launched a recycling program, and tended her native garden. She’s grateful to this, her church community, and all the people who serve it, for providing this lovely spiritual home for all of us.
