About Me

cija_slc_biopic

Cija (pronounced Kia) Jefferson is an education advocate by day, a writer by night, and host of Writers & Words, a Baltimore reading series. She would love to base her livelihood on collaborative creative endeavors.

She is a graduate of University of Baltimore’s M.F.A. in Creative Writing & Publishing Arts program, with a non-fiction focus. She received  her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY, where she focused her studies heavily on black history, sociology and literature, with a splash of theatre and poetry. After graduating from college, she headed cross-country to Los Angeles where she lived for three years immersing herself in non-profit work and enjoying the vibrant music scene. Debating about pursuing a career in stand-up comedy, she took an improv class at Groundlings Theatre & School and learned some useful communication techniques that can be applied in daily life. She ended up moving back to her home state of Maryland and currently resides in Baltimore.

She can be found on Twitter and Instagram @cijasquips when the mood strikes.
