About the author

The Simple Things - - THINK -

Nikita Gill’s po­ems are all about ac­cen­tu­at­ing the pos­i­tive. The world can be a harsh place, es­pe­cially for women, and her words aim to em­power and con­sole. As the Belfast-born author and artist says: “A poem is a hug in a few sen­tences.”

‘Venus’ is taken from the col­lec­tion Wild Em­bers: Po­ems of Re­bel­lion, Fire and Beauty (Trapeze).
