Why We’re Obsessed With Nikita Gill RN

Nikita Gill Modern Poetry Fierce Fairytailes & Other Stories To Stir Your Soul

If for some reason you don’t already follow her, do yourself a favor. P.S.- You’re welcome.

Gill has been writing for as long as she can remember. At only 12 years old a non-fiction story she wrote was published in a newspaper in India. Gill started sharing her poetry on Tumblr almost ten years ago, now she has almost half a million followers on Instagram where she continues to share her work.

Gills first manuscript was rejected by 137 publishers. That’s right, and she used it as fuel to better her creative process. Girl boss goals much? Today, Gill has three published books, “Your Soul is a River” and “Wild Embers”, and her newest piece, “Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul” and is currently working on another.

One thing we love most about Gill is her view on the ever-changing world of social media and how poetry plays into it. She advocates for poets to be credited as they deserve and is vocal about it. Having been the victim of famous celebrities like Khloe Kardashian not crediting her work, she longs to educate people about personal responsibility and art.

In her newest collection, “Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul”, she takes classic tales and turns them upside down with a feminist twist. Cinderella turned princess who saved herself, Little Red Riding Hood turned leader of wolves, and villains turned misunderstood characters who you suddenly can relate to.

Gill has a voice of feminism and imagination and blurs lines we never knew we wanted blurred. She tackles the toughest topics to share, which is why we’re obsessed with her. Round of applause to the woman who seems to be conquering the world and inspiring those along the way. Thanks, Nikita, we love you.
