Ms. Crenshaw is a living, breathing wordsmith who I've found to be positive, inspiring and a wonderful person to have met and now know. I am a member of the Spartan City Poetry Club that she organized for amateur and professional word spoken artists to gather, learn and share their hearts in poetry. I recommend this gifted entrepreneur, writer, organizer, lecturer, and business professional.

Jessica is a dynamic & passionate speaker. Her words touch & connect with the audience. She has a desire to help & inspire people.
C. Evans: Owner of CLE Events
Jessica is one of the most authentic individuals I have ever met. She has a good heart and her spirit shines through when she speaks to others. This young woman has the capability to encourage as well as educate. I'm in awe of how her presence captivates the attention of any audience she addresses.
A. Green, MFA: Community Outreach Coordinator, Methodist Le Bonheur
Jessica L. Crenshaw is a force to be reckoned with. As eloquent as she is straightforward, she is a superhero and spreads her good will and humor far and wide. She is an inspiration to budding artists, and font of wisdom for the reluctant public speaker, and as worldly and compassionate as they come. I cannot recommend her more highly if you want to inspire greatness in your given population.
C. Maria: Spartan City Poetry Club Member, Published Writer, & Poet
Jessica L. Crenshaw is a real genuine communicator. She's a great poet/ author, instructor, teacher, comedian, motivational speaker, and down-to-earth person. One thing I like so much is that no matter what event she hosts, whether it be a poetry show or an educational seminar, she has such an awesome ability to respectfully make you "feel right at home!"
Through her story from trails to triumph she is able to connect with her audience on a personal level in a professional way and truly becomes a huge impact on the lives of many. Oh, and don't be fooled by her witty southern slang...this writing warrior is a very talented sista whose voice carries strength and profound wisdom. The very nature of her speech and actions are rooted in kindness, love, and integrity.
As a speaker, she is certainly someone worth listening to. Because there is nothing generic or manipulative in her vision and/or deeds. As a person, she's just Jessica. A normal person doing extraordinary things. She epitomizes "The Golden Rule!" She is the founder of the Spartan City Poetry Club and does such a tremendous job functioning as CEO of the poetry club in which I am a proud member. A movement that definitely inspires and develops writing warriors!
Thanks to Ms. Crenshaw, I now have various opportunities to open doors and become a better artist as well as a speaker. All in all, she deserves her credits!
