I'm honored to be included in the Children's Writers' and Artists' Yearbook as a contributor for 2023 and 2024.


I'm thrilled to be participating as a Little GOLDen Book member for my 4th year in the 12x12 Picture Book Challenge.


This summer I will be offering 30-minute and 1-hour consultations for aspiring children's book writers.

I read a lot of children’s books, and I write them too.

Jenny Bowman is a full time freelance editor and an aspiring children’s book author. Passionate about writing, she authored (and illustrated!) her first book at the age of eight then completed her first published work, a Valentine’s poem for overseas troops, the following year. Since then, Jenny has been writing silly short stories, angsty teenage journals, artsy college poetry, low-budget indie screenplays, articles and opinion pieces, plus two middle grade novels and about a million and one picture book drafts.

Jenny runs a busy freelance, editing business where she specializes in children’s books. Having edited over 100 books for children to young adults, including books on the NYT bestseller list, Jenny enjoys teaching others about the craft of writing for children.

When she’s not editing or writing, Jenny enjoys backyard birding, experimenting in the kitchen and garden, traveling with her husband and two sons, and losing track of time on the beach.
