Jeanine Hennig was a fan writer, artist, zine editor, and poet.

In Star Wars fandom, Hennig edited one of the early Star Wars zines, Far Realms, and was the creator of the Catalyst! Universe.

It was Hennig who coined the term "Enclave," see First Terran Enclave.

In 2020, she contributed an essay about fanzine history to Geek Elders Speak, a small press publication anthology about female creativity in mid-20th century fandom. [1]

Pro Writer

Hennig is also a pro writer. In 1987, she wrote:
... you will be seeing a series of SF books (with somewhat-familiar names in them: Tamlin, 'Bekah, Jessami...) in your bookstore under the name of Jeanine Tullos Hennig. (And then all of you that own copies of FR1 will have grounds to blackmail me... uh, oh...) But I'll stay in fandom as long as you will have me. All of my friends are here, you know! [2]
