Jocelyn K. Glei

I’m a writer who’s obsessed with how we can find more creativity and meaning in our daily work.

My latest book is Unsubscribe, a modern guide to killing email anxiety, avoiding distraction, and getting real work done. My previous books include Manage Your Day-to-Day, Maximize Your Potential, and Make Your Mark, which offer pragmatic, actionable advice for creatives on managing their time, their careers, and their businesses.

I’ve given talks and led workshops at Google, The Guardian, How To Academy, and CreativeMornings, among others. My books and writing have been featured in outlets including NPR, New York Magazine, Fast Company, BuzzFeed, SELF, Harvard Business Review, and Brain Pickings.

The best way to tap into my brainwaves is to sign up for my newsletter.

My talks focus on how we can spend less time on busywork and more time on our best work — the activities that truly give our lives meaning.

This is a recent talk I gave at Webbdagarna in Stockholm:


If you require an image of me for press purposes, I have a few different formats and smile levels available. View and download headshots.

As someone who wrote a book called Unsubscribe, I am discerning about how much time I spend on email.

Please know that I read everything, but will only respond to the opportunities that align with my goals and acknowledge my existence as a unique human.
