My name is Alj Augustine-Cox, and I am a writer and aspiring fiction author. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and I am on a journey to make it my life’s work.
I was formerly an editor at Wetpaint Entertainment and have been featured on sites like XhibitP.com and GirlsLife.com, where I’ve written articles in regards to pop culture, music, society, as well as provide advice to young girls. I’ve also written for ProudGirls.com (formerly HangProud.com) and helped to spread the power of self-esteem and confidence to young women across the country.
I’ve also conducted several interviews with magnificent women who once took part in the VIVmagnificent Woman campaign by VIVmag magazine.
My passion for writing spreads to all facets, with fiction having a soft spot in my heart. I am currently working on my first full-length fantasy novel, in addition to finding publication for my numerous fiction shorts and essays.
At the moment, I’m currently freelancing, after being a Senior Editor and Senior Leadership member for BlackGirlNerds.com where you can find several features, editorials, and TV recaps.
Please feel free to look over my body of work posted here and/or contact me if you’re interested in me for an upcoming project!
Thank you once again,
