About Jess

Jess Mann is a writer and an overthinker from a long line of storytellers. At an early age, she remembers wanting to tell stories of her own, but teachers didn't like her talking all through class, and her friends sighed and rolled their eyes a lot, when she was yelling tales at them, so she began to write them down to keep from forgetting them. Jess now writes a lot of stories down. She has a BFA from the University of Maine, and is currently at work on her MFA at Goddard College. She has also managed to publish some of her tales in publications like The Sandy River Review, Paige Leaves, and contributed to the book Baking By Hand.

She is excited to meet all members of the storytelling tribe, and will never roll her eyes and sigh at anyone.
