Ashlyn CarterAshlyn Carter

Ashlyn serves creatives as a copywriter & calligrapher. She left her job as a publicist to go full-time with her calligraphy business—and realized there were a lot of creative entrepreneurs fumbling with their message and sales copy (you can take the girl out of the marketing agency…)

Trading clients like Delta Air Lines and Princess Cruises, she now writes conversion website copy and launch copy for heavy-hitting creative industry entrepreneurs like Jenna Kutcher, Melyssa Griffin, Katelyn James, Heather Crabtree, Hilary Rushford, Shay Cochrane, Desiree Hartsock Bridal, and Justin & Mary Marant. Her calligraphy has been featured in Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, and The Knot. When not writing about herself in third person, she’s usually trying to scratch the ink off her fingernails or grabbing margs and tacos with her husband.
