Thursday Twitter Takeover: Jess Volinski

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Jess Volinski will be taking over our Twitter account.

Jess Volinski is primarily an artist. Her illustrations and designs have appeared in many publications and on countless apparel, stationary and tableware products in major retailers across the world. In 2003 she graduated from New York City’s School of Visual Arts with a BFA with Honors in Illustration. While living in NYC, she worked in the publishing industry as an in-house freelance designer in the children’s book departments at Henry Holt, Scholastic, and HarperCollins. After leaving the city to start a family, she jumped into illustration as a full-time career and has been running her own business ever since.
