WHAT WRITERS SAY

ROBERT LEHRMAN

(Former speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore)
The Political Speechwriter’s Companion

“I've written seven books and had seven editors. All were good, but Jane is the best I've ever worked with. Her sensitivity to what I wanted, immense knowledge of what it takes to produce a book, and imagination when it came to suggesting different approaches made my book so much better."

MARK BRIGGS

Two books: Journalism Next and
Entrepreneurial Journalism

"Jane Harrigan takes a big lump of clay and helps me mold it
into something worthy of being called a book."

HOLLY STOCKING

The New York Times Reader: Science and Technology

“Jane instantly grasps your intentions and goes to
uncommon lengths to help you realize them. She won't
have her way with what you've written, but will help you
find your own way. Her thoughtful questions will
help you think harder about what you’re doing.”

DON MCLEESE

The New York Times Reader: Arts and Culture

"Jane made sharp, incisive and encouraging comments daily.
Her collaboration made this book much better and more fun
than it could have been without her. I almost hated
to see the process come to an end."

SUSAN KEMPTON

The Literate Kindergarten

"Jane pushed me to clarify my thinking, simplify ideas,
eliminate fluff and reorganize. She listened to my voice
and brought depth to my message."
