Greetings & Salutations


Dear Reader,

My name is Jessan (pronounced as if it were spelled "Jess - AN <--like an apple"). I am a professional writer, published poet, former Adjunct Professor and Visiting Lecturer/Artist.

I have traveled across the United States twice - once solo; and, have been blessed to travel to several countries outside the US, as well.

Since May, 1996, I have been the founder/owner of |Jessan Dunn Otis|Writer", collaborating with clients to create custom content that communicates; and, a tad more mischief.

Some things I love: fresh-brewed, dark roast coffee, walking out into a new day, laughing, dancing, being a stranger in a new place.

I live in and work from my beloved city, Providence, Rhode Island (USA) - that has the longest, official name and a huge heart.

Please be free to let me know if I can ever be of any help to you and your endeavors.

Kind regards,
