Angelique is a poet. She was raised on the Southside of Chicago and is a recent transplant to the intersection of agriculture and academia in Indiana. Born to a dope ass teen mom word nerd punk rock singer in the early 80's, she was raised at the knee of farm folks from all over Louisiana who'd joined the military and moved North during the Great Migration to work in factories. Thus she grew up with a soul full of lyricism and an eye for detail.
An admitted farmers market lurker, slow food lover, hip-hop head, trap and country music enthusiast, party planner, second generation word nerd and delightful contradiction, you'll always catch her with family, friends, books, poetry, coffee, rocking cowboy boots from her extensive collection, protesting, volunteering on boards and committees, pondering the simple, the unique and the divine, and hustling to get her first collection of poetry out.
Her poetry has been published in The Adirondack Review, Sugar House Review, Glass: A Journal of Poetry's Poet Resist Series, Poets Reading the News, So to Speak: a feminist journal of language + art, SWWIM, Rise Up Review, Pretty Owl Poetry, Rogue Agent, Psaltery & Lyre, Mortar Magazine, Obsidian: Literature & Arts of the African Diaspora, Yemassee, anomalous press, The Midwest Review and others.
Angelique is a 2020 Pushcart Prize nominee, two-time 2020 Best New Poets nominee, a three-time 2020 Best of the Net Anthology Nominee, a two-time 2019 Best of the Net Anthology nominee, and a Spring 2019 Black River Chapbook Competition Finalist. Her chapbook Love Letters to The Revolution from The American Poetry Journal released November 2020 and is available for purchase here.
She lives in West Lafayette, Indiana with her husband The Silver Fox, daughter The Revolution, and a wild rescue dog The Honorable Jack Lebron Zobitz. She can be found on Twitter and Instagram: @angeliquezobitz
