About Ajolique


Ajolique is a writer and poet from Washington, DC. Through her writing, Ajolique contends with tools of imagery and storytelling to explore the many wonders, aches, and truths of being.  

As someone who has often fought for her voice and the space to be heard, Ajolique finds poetry to be an open retreat into her exchanges with the world, whether soft or bold.  Her personal essays have been featured in Upspoken Women and Black Girl in Om.  Ajolique also facilitates workshops and events centered on mindful awareness, self-love, and healing.

BECOMING ENOUGH, her first collection of poetry and essay, is to be released October 9, 2018.
