Since 2019, I have worked as a contractor for the PETA Foundation, where I have written opinion editorials and advertising features. I also have written website descriptions and newsletters for Lil Becky’s Hot Sauce.
My areas of expertise include vegan food and lifestyle products, performing arts, Jewish culture, and women’s wellbeing.
Want to hire me for copywriting or content marketing services?Jessica helped Lil Becky’s Hot Sauce with product descriptions for our new website. She quickly captured the particular rock-n-roll-blended-with-neighbourhood-cat tone that defines Lil Becky’s, and created content that was snappy, engaging, and informative for clients. Lil Becky’s has maintained this working relationship with Jess throughout 2020, and we will collaborate more in 2021.

Anne-Louise Sarks looks for the redemptive qualities within Shakespeare’s most problematic comedy
When we catch up with her in late June, Anne-Louise Sarks is achieving a level of 9am erudition that most of us could only dream of. She is incisive, passionate, and very awake. Sarks has a rehearsal beginning at 10am for Bell Shakespeare’s upcoming production of The Merchant of Venice, and she likes to be prepared. Readiness seems her trademark: ready for work, ready for interviews, and ready to engage with a theatre canon that can, at times, feel a little bit intimidating.

Meet nine backstage heroes responsible for your favourite shows
That myth that Aussies have a slurred, closed-lip parlance stemming from the need to keep flies out of our mouths? No. It’s much more likely due to the use of our tongues, the soft palate and the geography of our faces.
But you know what’s indisputable about our accent? Its friendliness. Dr Geraldine Cook-Dafner found that, in the early years of her relocation to Australia, “If I didn’t smile when I was speaking, people thought I was really unfriendly. When I go to visit my brother in the North of England I think, ‘That person was a bit rude…I’m home!’”
Make the New Year Count for Animals and the Planet
In a year dominated by COVID-19 headlines, it was easy for climate change and the environment to slide off the agenda: The word “climate” even fell off the Oxford Dictionary’s count of most-popular words in 2020. Yet, another recent count—the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change, which collates advice from global public health experts—reminds us that we must keep climate change squarely in our thoughts moving forward. This research collaboration monitored the relationship between climate change and public health and concluded that a warming climate threatens health, the economy, and our communities. The next few years are critical if we want to avoid catastrophic climate change, and we can make our choices count by going vegan today.
