Jennifer Garam is a coffee-drinking, yoga-mat-toting, bookstore-browsing writer, teacher, and speaker. She's been a blogger for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today, and was a regular contributor to The Frisky, where she wrote dating and relationship advice and personal essays. In addition, her articles have appeared on SELF.com, TIME.com, Redbookmag.com, Cosmopolitan.com, VICE's new health site Tonic, Prevention.com, Women's Health, Men's Health, Thrillist, Health.com, The Establishment, xoJane, TheFix.com, The Good Men Project, and Seleni.org, a nonprofit organization dedicated to women's mental health, and her celebrity music profiles have been featured in Interview Magazine. In 2006, Jennifer started the blog One Writeous Chick about self-esteem and creativity, and having practiced yoga for the past 19 years, seven years ago she launched the blog NotSoZen YogaJen about being a Type A urbanite using yoga to help manage depression and anxiety. She also worked at Time Inc. as a Web editor of AllYou.com, a women's lifestyle site that focuses on living well on a budget, and wrote feature articles for All You Magazine.
Jennifer has been teaching writing workshops for over ten years, and her classes emphasize finding and strengthening your voice, overcoming blocks, developing a consistent writing practice, and making the whole process enjoyable. She's led workshops at lululemon athletica, Sheila Kelley's S Factor, The Educational Alliance, Skillshare, and the REVEAL Conference about women and spirituality at Donna Karan's Urban Zen, and also works with clients individually.
Back-in-the day as an actress, she performed her solo material at The Barrow Group Theatre, hosted a Manhattan Cable television program about New York City entertainment and culture, and wrote plays, three of which were selected for The Samuel French Festival. In this day, she hasn't given up performing entirely, if you count dancing around her apartment to R&B tunes.
