Punchy details, actionable advice, standout personal essays

Jen Glantz is known for her personal essays, tip-based articles, and well-researched articles covering business, finance, wedding, relationship, and healthy living topics.


My writing background spans across 15 years, weaving in multiple different platforms and moments of bold success. 

I began as a writer for local Florida newspapers and magazines, penning feature articles and writing breaking news. From there, I started the blog The Things I Learned From, where I've written close to 2,000 posts, many of which have been syndicated by the Huffington Post and other publications.

I've been a freelance writer for major publications, including TODAY.com, Glamour magazine, Refinery29, Cosmo, Women's Health magazine, BRAVO.com, Yahoo, and over 25 additional places.
I've also had the pleasure of writing copy for well-known brands, like Disney, GEICO, T-Mobile, and The Home Depot. 
Over the years, I've been hired by tech start-ups, dating apps, wedding vendors, fitness platforms, and other companies to write website copy, blog posts, and marketing materials for them.

My biggest accomplishments in writing can be seen in bookstores, where you'll find both of my books. All My Friends Are Engaged was published in 2014 and became an Amazon best seller. Always a Bridesmaid (for Hire) was published in 2017 by Simon and Schuster. My newest book, Finally the Bride, is currently being released chapter by chapter.

I'd love to write for you.
