About Jenna



jennawall_webJenna Caputo has been a part of the writing world all her life. Crafting stories, articles, children's books, and plays since she was little, Jenna decided to pursue her passion as a full-time career. Attending Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, she majored in English with a concentration in creative writing. Studying with top writers and teachers in the country (including Pulitzer Prize winner, Steven Millhauser; Emmy nominee, Tom Lewis; and Governor-General’s Award winner, Douglas Glover), Jenna learned many valuable skills to improve all aspects of her writing - creative or otherwise.

Jenna interned as a screenwriter & producer's assistant at 20th Century Fox in Beverly Hills, California. Her passion for both the screen and theater has continued to thrive. She writes screenplays in various genres and produces and acts in local theater venues, which gives her an insider’s knowledge of what works onstage and what doesn’t. She is also a current member of the Capital-Saratoga Film Commission and the Certified Professional Writers Association.

Broadening her horizons into editing, Jenna initially worked on several types of editing projects, including straight copyediting, before quickly moving into developmental editing. She helped develop first and additional edition textbooks in a variety of subjects including health care, education, and fire science. She worked with several top publishing companies, including Pearson Prentice Hall, McGraw-Hill, Elsevier, and Delmar Cengage, as well as Triple SSS Press Media Development, in developmental editing, specializing in text permissions, as well as copyediting before moving on to business and manuscript editing. In the business venue, Jenna works with businesses to copyedit their content for both online and print materials. On the publishing side, Jenna enjoys working with all types of manuscripts but specializes in copyediting Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction. On the academic side, Jenna works with high school students to edit their college admissions essays to help their applications shine.

When wearing her writing hat, Jenna concentrates on the craft of article writing and creative fiction. She has had many articles published through the Adirondack Sports & Fitness Magazine, Clifton Park Neighbors, Niskayuna Neighbors, Malta Neighbors, Loudonville Neighbors, North Country Neighbors, Saratoga Today,, as well as through other venues like and Albany Dance Examiner. She specializes in articles on health/wellness, inspiration, family, fitness, dance, and nutrition; however, she also enjoys writing for other subject areas as well.

Although her passion for creative writing has taken her into a specialty in Children and Young Adult Fiction, Jenna has also taken great pleasure in the business writing and editing arena. It creates a greater sense of satisfaction than she originally thought possible to create copy that produces measurable results! To be able to take a business’ mission, and put that purpose to words has been an exciting and fulfilling challenge.
