When Nikita Gill took to writing at the age of 12, she believed that she would grow up to touch the world with her words. That dream was rudely cut short when her manuscripts were rejected by no less than 137 publishers. And after all those rejections, today, she’s a published author with three titles under her belt; her latest being Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire and Beauty. Each of her poetry talks about different phases of love and how to cope when things go down the drain. Relatability being the most endearing facet of her writing, she relies heavily on her own experiences to fuel her creativity. You can follow her on Instagram at @nikita_gill.
“The human experience and it’s correlation to nature is one of the most inspiring things in the world. And how we interact with each other, the great sadness and joy we experience due to the actions of others or ourselves are subjects we can all relate to,” she says.
