JACLEEN JANZER, Writer and Editor
Jacleen is what we like to call “an editor’s editor.” Her personal love of books, combined with a prestigious educational pedigree, allows her to catch the errors and inconsistencies that even some of our best editors miss. While Jacleen is a native of the California Mojave High Desert, Europe has claimed her heart for the past few years and she has resided in England and Ireland. She recently received her second master’s degree in International Contemporary Literatures and Media at National University of Ireland, Galway. Jacleen has a B.A. in Journalism from California State University, Northridge and an M.A. in Publishing from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, UK.
Among her many writing/editing credits, Jacleen was the associate editor on a 32-page book festival newspaper supplement for the 2016 High Desert Book Festival.
