Testimonials

“I had completed a self-study program and thought I was fairly competent. Becca’s course made me take what I knew and make it even better. Becca showed me how to tailor and refine my work for real world publication. I was very happy with the improvements I made by the end of the course.”

“Becca has been instrumental in the success of my writing process for years. When my work is returned to me after being edited, it always comes with a lesson included. The lesson may be an explanation as to why word order was reorganized, or why grammar was changed. Links are attached with further explanations as to how I can solve challenges with my writing and more. Editing that comes with education is priceless. I’d much rather learn than just be corrected. I can’t recommend working with Becca highly enough, her availability and attentiveness are second to none. I am the writer I am today because of her tutelage.”

“My specialty was never writing. I was a science major with no real background in writing. Mrs. Jenkins edited my work every week for two years. She molded me and showed me how to write for the general public. She always made her expectations clear and concise, and because of Mrs. Jenkins, I was noticed by a publishing company. I just signed a contract with a major publisher to write my first book. They noticed my writing with Breaking Muscle and they requested I write a book for them.

I owe the success of my writing career to Mrs. Jenkins. Learning from her opened doors in the writing world I didn’t think existed for me. I will be forever grateful for Mrs. Jenkins’ guidance, and she is still the first person I’d go to if I ran into a problem with my writing. She’s an amazing teacher, and I am so thankful I had a chance to learn from her.”

“Working with Becca Borawski Jenkins has opened more doors than I would have imagined possible. Last year I met a personal goal of being published in both local and national print magazines, and it wouldn’t have happened without her help and guidance for the last three years. Becca’s coaching and expertise have made me feel at home in my writing. She has an amazing way of cutting to the heart of my writing struggles and helping me see the solution. Her instruction is always concise and she has an unmatched eye for detail. She sees writing not just as a tool for conveying information, but as a medium for personal expression. Becca is an engaging, knowledgeable, and empowering teacher who will help you discover your true limits as a writer – truly a rare find.”

“Becca Borawski Jenkins is an outstanding teacher of writing. I have known her for two years in different capacities. She currently serves as my editor, where I see her outstanding writing skills and gentle teaching approach. She does a great job knowing her writer and catering her feedback to his or her needs. I have seen a great deal of her teaching skills, as well. She works well with students who are easily discouraged. She provides a great deal of positive feedback sandwiched around constructive ideas. This approach allows the student to feel good as a writer while enhancing and challenging his or her work.”

“I’ve loved being part of the writing team for Breaking Muscle under the guidance of Becca Borawski Jenkins. I always feel I’m in the most capable hands. She conveys constructive criticism without being harsh and my writing always ends up in a better place. Becca gives off a positive forward-moving kind of attitude balanced by technical intelligence and know-how, which is very reassuring as a writer collaborating with her.”

~ Alison Bristow-Wilburn

“One of my major gripes with many of my writing instructors throughout high school and college was that they had a very specific idea of what I was supposed to write. Becca seems to come from a different place. Her constructive criticism and advice has always helped to bring out the best of what was already in my pieces. The focus is solely on figuring out how to communicate my message more effectively, never how to make my message sound like someone else’s. Her advice is always direct and useful, never rife with the philosophical ambiguity I’ve come to know from other “teachers.” Not only has she helped me gain confidence and a clearer, stronger voice, but she has always done so with unfailing positivity and kindness. I have to admit I’m a bit stubborn and I’ve always had trouble with coaches telling me what to do. I don’t have that problem with Becca. It’s easy to accept criticism when you feel like the critic is personally invested in making you better. Regardless of where my writing career goes, I’ll always be grateful that it started with such a genuinely helpful individual.”
