Who we are
2B Writing Company is two women who love to listen and to write. With a world of expertise in journalism and creative writing under our joint belts, Merridawn and Jenn translate your individual, company, or non-profit needs into writing, editing, or full-scale publicity campaigns that work for you.
The singer says he’s been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. Substitute queen and you pretty much have my resume. These days I also teach and edit and I write and write and write. My work falls roughly into the major genres — fiction non-fiction, playwriting and lyrical essay but I’ve strayed from those occasionally and, like any artist, I dig thoseinterstices. Despite this flipping among genre, which in some eras gets you dubbed “Renaissance” and in others “ADD,” there has always been one constant love. I love language, in all its iterations, in the body, the mouth, the mind and especially on the page. My major project is my novel The Analysand, which is almost ready for its close up.
Jenn Director Knudsen
A journalist for more than 15 years, I like to inject humor -- or at least lightheartedness -- in my pieces, be they works of reporting, personal essays, press releases, case studies, position papers, appeal letters, missives to other media folks, or my blog posts. Accuracy underpins all my writing (even in blog posts, for example, where my kids question my take on things). But that's what kids -- and sources and readers -- do and are supposed to do: Question and take pleasure in the results I provide.
