Jessica Tyler is a Germantown based copywriter, artist, and poet who uses her crafts to fight for literacy, and LGBT and POC rights. She spends her free time volunteering with illiterate adults, as well as adults seeking GEDs and job placement. Her hobbies also include collecting more books than can be read in a lifetime, and learning the etymology behind words. That may sound strange, but her mother (who taught English for over 30 years and self-published a novel-series) is her inspiration, and the reason why she is passionate about the English language.
