This is Me
Learn more about me and the curvy path that finally brought me back to writing full time.
As a Storyteller & Arts Communicator, Cindy Marie Jenkins makes the reader feel as though they’re right there, experiencing the same emotions and perspectives as the subject. She spent over a decade in Los Angeles as a consultant for entrepreneurs and the arts, running workshops that used a highly organized and creative approach to help clients articulate everything from values to marketing plans; these included an NEA funded workshop series to elevate the digital marketing plans of local theaters. For five years she experimented in connecting audiences with arts they’d enjoy at the Hollywood Fringe Festival through live interviews, podcasts and a YouTube reviews show.
Currently a Write-at-Home-Mom in Orlando for cool reasons that require multiple NDAs to explain, Cindy chronicles her life as a Trailing Spouse, Work-at-Home-Parent on her blog and Instagram. Her short story “The Keys in Her Lock” was published in Battle Demon Goddess’s anthology Demonic Household: See Owner’s Manual and she’s currently writing a horror story about carnival clowns for the third volume in the same series. Her editorials or articles have been published at The Mary Sue, Theatre Communications Guild, The Clyde Fitch Report, The Mom Forum, No Proscenium, Dwarf_Giant ( a blog of The Last Bookstore), Better Lemons, Theatre @ Boston Court and more. Because of her play Voices From Chornobyl that was based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book of interviews, Cindy was honored to be the Keynote Speaker at the UK Remember Chernobyl Conference.
She helped launch the Nook Real Estate blog and upgraded the copy for real estate listings, bios, presentations and their social profile bios, among other duties as their Staff Writer.
Her topics of specialty include DIY marketing, arts features, theatre critique, immersive experiences, the intersection of arts and parenting, fairy tale and mythology re-tellings, short memoir and relocation tips. (She can also guide you to the best beer available in Disney World .)
Formerly Communications Director at 24th ST Theatre & Women's Theatre Festival, she also served as Social Media Strategist for a number of companies in the arts and private producers. Cindy recently facilitated the @52playsbywomen movement that was created by Mythologist Laura Shamas. Arts education has always been integral to her work, as in her work as the Director of Arts Education at Enrichment Works, Artistic Associate at The Antaeus Company and a DUI Theatre Program funded in part by the LA Department of Transportation.
