Hi, I'm Jill. Come on in.

Love that we get to hang out. Sorry you had to bring your own bevie.

What is this place? It's the home of The Margette (known in its former iteration as The Jill Margo Mini-Mag), a collection of essays, one a time. It's also where I'm able to share some of my other work on my writing page. Plus, it's a Pop-Up Shop where I pop in to help other prose writers and creative entrepreneurs with their writing. 

Whether you need help or want to amuse yourself with a 10-minute reading break, click on one of the charms below.

I'm so glad you're here.


Read by famous literary people, an ex-boyfriend, and my Aunt Janet. More...

Grown-up show & tell. More...

The Golden Rule: Do unto other writers as you'd have them do unto you. More...

Coming soon... and it's going to be good. 

Raise your hand if you have a question. More...

Really, you can just say hi. More...


What People Have Said About The Jill Margo Mini-Mag

The Jill Margo Mini-Mag is David Sedaris crossed with a drunk Dear Abby. It’s the highlight of my inbox.
~ Julie Paul
Smart, sexy, pinkish, weird, bunnies, boxing gloves, and a bit of hide-under-the-bed anxiety in a tight little package of words.
~ Gina Leola Woolsey
Just when I thought I was alone, along comes Jill Margo to say: “We are all in this together.”
~ Beverley Cooper
I adore the mini-mag. It cured me of my general disillusionment about culture and writing in this over-stimulating, content-packed world. This is not “content”—it’s magic.
~ Sarah Selecky
Reading Jill Margo’s mini-mag is like meeting with a therapist who never makes you talk, but simply articulates what you’re struggling with and offers it up to you.
~ Emily Fraser-Jeffries
It’s incredibly refreshing to read about writing in a way that is not pedantic or pretentious—simply real, honest, and witty.
~ Lara Stokes
It’s good for me as the general manager—and a non-creative writer—at a very small publishing company to read about the life of a writer.
~ Kitty Lewis
Jill Margo makes me laugh. And cry. Sometimes simultaneously. Her writing is smart, sassy, and often the highlight of my week. Someday soon she’s going to be famous.
