Nick Makoha

NICK MAKOHA’s first full-length collection ‘Kingdom of Gravity’ was shortlisted for the Felix Dennis Prize for best first collection (Forward Prizes for Poetry) and he was the 2015 winner of the Brunel University African Poetry Prize. He toured the UK with his solo show My Father & Other Superheroes. His advice to young poets is advice that he has himself received and found helpful: ‘Poetry works best when you serve it daily with reading, writing and conversation. Read what you like, read what you don’t like, read what you know and read what confuses you.’
