J. Alejandro

Writer + Collaborator

Hello! My name is Jaime Alejandro Cruz. I am a writer and collaborator. 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 multi-disciplinary narratives and devising. I believe in the work of working class creatives. The Write/Rec Lab is a place I created to foster creative community and to produce high quality, short-form collaborations. My work aims to humanize the working class, as well as the Other. I want to share stories that we feel in our bones.
