Jennifer A. Minotti (she/her/hers) is a Writer-in-Residence at the Center for Women's Health and Human Rights at Suffolk University where she facilitates  Women's Writing Circles as a means to merge her passions for expressive writing, positive psychology, community organizing, women’s health, and social activism.


In 2020, Jen founded the Journal of Expressive Writing in order to provide a place for sharing expressive writing, believing that we need this space on a fundamental, human level and that whatever we are feeling is a link to what others are feeling across the planet at any given moment.


For the past 25 years, Jen has dedicated her professional life toward working for the betterment of society. For 17 years, Jen worked at Education Development Center (EDC)—a global non-profit working to improve education, health, and economic opportunities worldwide—in a variety of technology, research, writing, and leadership roles for projects that focused on health and human development, special education, online professional development, literacy, bullying-prevention, urban education, science, assistive technology, and inclusive schooling practices.

Jen is a graduate of Boston University (B.S.) and Columbia University (M.A., M.Ed) and holds certificates in Wholebeing Positive Psychology, Transformative Language Arts Foundations, Distance Education, and Herbal Studies. She is also passionate about spreading gratitude. She co-created The World's Very First Gratitude Parade, helped establish Gratitude Day in the City of Cambridge, MA, and regularly spreads gratitude through her Gratitude Jar project.


Her writing and poetry is published widely in numerous refereed journals, literary publications, and in an anthology (forthcoming).
