Writer & Poet
Hi, I'm Julia. I live an "out write crazy" life- pun completely intended. I am a Texas-born, New York-bred, and New Jersey-based writer with a strong curiosity for culture.
I’ve had opportunities to exhibit my creativity through blogging, social media planning, and various copywriting over the course of my professional career. My dedication to my work is inspired by my relentless optimism and desire to learn and grow.
My creative writing focuses on free-verse poetry and reflection essays. One of my poems was featured in the 2016 edition of University at Buffalo Literary Magazine NAME. My first book of poems, Sentience, was self-published in November 2016. Garden, my latest book, is available now on Amazon.com. In May 2020, I was the featured poet for Fourth Friday LIVE hosted by Rachel Robles. Likewise, I am a contributor to the Medium.com Partner Program. You will find my favorite reflection pieces there.
