J. Alejandro | Writer + Maker

My name is J. Alejandro.

I have been writing and recording since I was a kid. I write plays, screenplays, and poetry. I also produce audio content showcasing original works, about the writing process, and pop culture. I have a fascination with narratives that work across various mediums. I believe in the work of working class creatives. Idle, WY is a blog I created to keep track of all this. My work aims to humanize the working class, as well as the Other. I want to share stories that we feel in our bones.
