Tiriq R. Callaway is an Atlantic City, New Jersey native who also credits Pleasantville, New Jersey as the town that raised him. He refers to his hometown as “Atlantic-Ville,” a name he coined by combining the two cities together. As an accomplice to his writing style, authenticity rings loud when Callaway writes. His life experiences and master's degree in social work, equipped him with the empathy he uses to create encouraging work for others.

Tiriq's deep passion to write and help people, pushed him to self-publish his first book, a memoir about his life entitled, A Diamond In God’s Dirt. He's been published in the New Social Worker Magazine for his poetry, and also had work published in the Rizzarr Magazine, by award winning journalist Ashley M. Williams.

Tiriq's debut poetry book (available on Amazon) “shine through our shade: an evolution of self love,” has reached the likes of Nikki Giovanni who stated, "Tiriq has vision beyond his years … his poetry is simple but expressed powerfully, and viscerally captures both the universal human experience and the particular struggles of an African American man today."


Tiriq continues to gain daily inspiration from the world and his personal experiences. The author intimately expresses his thoughts and beliefs, and aims to make a personal connection with people to spread more hope, happiness, love, and laughter every day.
