Janelle Hanchett

About The Teacher

Janelle Hanchett is an author, blogger, and mother of four. A lifelong journal writer and chronic English major (she holds a B.A. and M.A. in English), she founded a blog called “Renegade Mothering” in 2011, after the birth of her third child, because she couldn’t find anybody writing her experience of motherhood. Writing after the kids went to bed, between graduate school classes and on lunch breaks from her “real” job, Janelle is well versed in writing as a hobby and the struggle to prioritize creative work that may or may not result in financial returns.

Over the years, Janelle’s blog grew to draw hundreds of thousands of readers each month and eventually attracted the attention of a Literary Manager and Agent at 3 Arts Entertainment, who worked with her to turn a very rough first draft memoir into a book proposal, which was sold to Hachette Book Group and published in May 2018. Janelle has taught writing at the university level, and has been independently leading creative writing workshops and retreats for three years.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
