Jay Crisp Crow is a business owner, messy mother, handmade lover, and ex-showgirl who used to sing on the back of monster trucks before having children and getting ‘sensible’.

She somewhat surprised herself by becoming a multi award-winning copywriter, editor, and copy coach working with brands and business people around the globe. Building an incredible career based on the art of writing words that sell, Jay has turned her love of stories and people into something she never thought possible – a sustainable, thriving business.

For a lifetime Jay believed she wouldn’t be able to make a living as a writer. She is thoroughly enjoying disproving that prediction.
