Writing Coaching

Are you a lawyer who needs to write better?

Whether it’s

  • a critical email,
  • a blog post,
  • social media, or
  • creative writing,

I can help.

I’ve written 275+ blog posts, Tweeted more times than I want to admit (@jennalvey), authored winning briefs, countless memos, and edited hundreds of legal articles. I’m a former federal appellate law clerk. I’ve been there and done that, and I teach you the ropes.

Working together, we can refine your professional writing to give it high impact and effectiveness. I can teach you how to get beyond writer’s block, and spend your time writing, not staring at the screen or doing, um, highly necessary surfing to avoid writing.

If you want to write articles for legal publications, I’ve got the experience you need to help get it written, polished and placed. We can work from concept, rough draft, or just polishing. I can teach you how to write query letters that will get editors calling you back.

If you want to venture out into creative waters, I can guide you on your path. Whether you want to experiment with fiction or creative non-fiction, we can put together a plan for getting your creative feet wet, and find joy in the process.

I offer blocks of time that will give you as much, or as little, help as you need. The minimum block is one hour, but you can split that into 4, 15-minute blocks on a schedule that suits you!

  1. Hi I was wondering maybe you could give me some writing tips. I’m planning on studying Legal Studies and Australian and International Politics next year and you may have figured that I want to pursue a future in the areas of Law. I’ll admit I have pretty bad writing skills and techniques or maybe its because I failed my year 11 exam in semester and its making me doubt my capabilities. But then again my teacher was a complete nut case that insulted everyone and everything, hardly learned a thing from him.
    These subjects require writing essays, reviewing etc and I’m trying to improve as much as I can. Also wondering if you would recommend for somebody that isn’t so great in the field of writing to do both the subjects.
    Next year is my last year of school and so I really want to make sure I do well in my exams because I am planning to study in a University interstate which therefore means I have to get a really high TER score compared to most students. So far the only piece I have written is a Grievance speech and an essay on Human Rights based on how Indigenous people were treated unequally.
    I am still not sure which area of law I plan to study yet but I am really passionate about these subjects. I already have enough pressure from everyone telling me I have to study my ass off and remember stacks of books its like their telling me I can’t make it to my face but in a nicer way.
