Ed Jacobson is a coach, consultant, and trainer based in Madison, Wisconsin. Prior to moving from Evanston in 2003, he was a longtime, devoted member of the Chicago-area Write From the Heart group, having taken numerous writing workshops with Hal Zina Bennett and Susan Sparrow. Ed began writing his This Appreciative Moment© weekly e-column a year ago, and he currently distributes it to more than 450 clients, colleagues, friends, and anyone else who requests it (at firstname.lastname@example.org). “Replenishing the Doll-Maker’s Supplies” is a recent column, and it is Ed’s tribute to writers and the writing journey. His book, Appreciative Moments: Stories and Practices for Living and Working Appreciatively, is projected to be published in the Fall.
