AJ McQueen

Artist, Activist & Poet

Two St. Louis natives who met in Houston; Gospel PR Founder, Cartiay McCoy, and AJ McQueen joined forces to propel AJ's visibility in the media.


As the co-founder of The Writer's Block showcase, a poet, activist, and youth leader -- AJ's unmatched passion and dedication to see positive change was evident in each interview.


Cartiay wrote AJ's bio and press materials, served as onsite publicist for The Writer's Block showcase, pitched AJ for media segments, and promoted AJ's music and book The Art of Life


AJ's ABC 13 feature honoring Maya Angelou ignited his visibility in the city and caused him to be sought out for future segments where his expertise was needed.
