two birds crunchy in the middle
and yep, Jay Crisp Crow is really my name
+ a word nerd bird
+ my own boss; premium copywriter + copy mentor at Crisp Copy
+ podcast host at So Crisp + Don’t Tell Me What To Do
+ ex showgirl + Musical Theatre tragic + Speaker – see Mum, I did do something with my stagecraft training
+ Ma for glories I can’t believe I raised + lover of a Viking Roadie + try to be that friend that remembers birthdays but instead buys people presents when I see something they’ll like as I know that former goal is personally unattainable #GiftsAreMyLoveLanguage
+ fat + feisty + brave + tired + too much + a #FullySickBusinessChick
I’m also constantly changing my mind about these labels
I also didn’t start out thinking I’d become the main attraction
I wrote copy. I sold words. I wrote for other people and made them lots of money. I was the chorus line dancer for a stream of clever women in business.
My clients were published in magazines and books, and the copy I’ve written for them has netted millions of dollars per year. They won awards with my words and I slow-clapped them with pride.
I was asked to tell my story, then again, then to present a copywriting workshop, then a class, then a Masterclass, then five. And soon Crisp Copy was launched and I was teaching writing to women in business and mentoring copywriters and other marketing professionals from all corners of the globe.
I wrote a chapter in a book, then another. I won some awards. Anyway, you know the story: “small-town word nerd becomes shiz-hot woman in her own right and surprises even herself.” I found I’m not too past-it to step up and take the microphone and tell a story, teach what I know, make some noise.
So, now I sometimes get out. Wear a dress (y’all know the one). Talk to humans. But most of the time I am writing, making other women lots of money all while wearing yoga pants and talking to the geese at the back door in my Australian hillbilly home office.

Allow me direct access to your psyche via your ear canal …
It won’t hurt a bit
Curious people are the best kind
so ask me the things
