The Coolikan Writers Block is ignited and united by love for the Father, community justice and empowerment, and free thought and expression. We dare to be raw, honest, and provocative, holding nothing back from the narrative of radical righteous living.
ELISE LOCKAMY (30) is a humanitarian in Atlanta, GA. The self-described “power player” believes in the influence of empowered voice to change the world. She won’t stop until the dignity and glory of all God’s creation is evident to the same. Her nicknames range from “granny” to “Angela Davis”, reflecting her desire to share wisdom and also spark a cultural revolution from time to time. When not spending time with her loved ones, she enjoys directing people on how things should be — welp. This Brooklyn native laughs at everything, and loves living as God’s delight. Ask about her…
ACASIA OLSON (30) is not sure where she’s from, (Alabama, Germany, New Jersey, the DC Metro Area, ATL…who knows) but her tent is currently in the evergreen kingdom of Seattle, WA. As a little girl, she used to envision herself as a superhero/X-Woman (Storm anyone?) on a quest to rid the world of tyranny/evil/drab. While she’s still looking to spark change and turn the world upside down, she’s taking a few notes from Kid President and Jesus (Be Awesome (by dancing) and Speak the Truth in Love). She is married to the love of her life and can usually be found in the middle of an adventure.

OBEHI JANICE (29) is an actress, writer, comedian and all around fly-a$$ chick from Lowell, Massachusetts. Her love languages include coffee shops (#bougie), tea (residual effects of colonialism!), television (half-hour comedies and hour-long BBC dramas), brunch (#stillbougie), books and Batman. Obehi is Nigerian-American by birth but a daughter of God by encounter. And for that, she is forever grateful. She has two first names — it’s a long story.
