Jeff Gerke

Writer's Digest author and world-class fiction instructor

When you’re truly ready to make your fiction publishable, it’s time to call Jeff Gerke. Jeff trains novelists how to better do what it is they’re trying to do. He trains through his books for Writers Digest: The Irresistible Novel, Plot Versus Character, The First 50 Pages, Write Your Novel in a Month, and The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fiction.

Jeff trains through the many writers’ conferences he teaches at all over the country every year. He trained his authors when he ran Marcher Lord Press, the premier publisher of Christian speculative fiction, which he sold after an award-winning 5-year run. And he trains through the freelance editing he does for his clients.

Jeff is known for his brilliantly clear teaching style, his humor, his canny book doctoring skills, and his encouraging manner, all of which leave writers feeling empowered and like they really can do this thing after all.

He lives in Colorado Springs with his wife and three children.
