Who the hell is this?

My name is J. Alejandro. I write and record. I’m sending a creative signal from the WY prairie in many forms. My plays have received productions at the University of Wyoming, Evergreen College, Rain City Projects/Annex Theater and the Las Vegas Little Theater, as well as readings at the Seattle Repertory Theater Poncho Forum, the Last Frontier Conference in Alaska, and the American College Theater Festival at the Kennedy Center. I’ve worked on educational commissions for the University of Wyoming and have worked with the Casper Children’s Theater on theater for young audiences. I was a semifinalist for the Screamcraft Horror Contest for The Inherited, a coming of age supernatural thriller screenplay. I was also the national winner of the inaugural NAPAT Playwriting Award, and was a KCACTF national finalist for the John Cauble Award for my short play, Dead in the Kitchen. I studied theater performance at Casper College, and earned a BFA in playwriting/directing from the University of Wyoming.

Feel free to look around, and I hope we can collaborate on short form creative stuff.

Make art!


What the hell is this?

Long ago, I wrote about a place called Idlewind, WY. I go there to be creative.

I started Idlewind to instigate artistic projects in my community with friends/collaborators, and to encourage working class artists elsewhere to believe in their creative projects and see them through.

Check out the Instagram Prompts @idlewindwy and get writing!

Working class creatives, what are you up to? Send me a message!

Make art. Make haste.
