Featured poet: Niccolea M. Nance!

Phoenix, Arizona poet and artist Niccolea M. Nance has been putting her emotions on paper since she could first write full sentences. Niccolea began performing her spoken word poetry in 2002 and has methodically developed her talent over the years with a multitude of feature performances throughout the Phoenix metro area as well as Tucson, Flagstaff, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Albuquerque.

Slam Master and 2010 Individual World Poetry Slam finalist Jesse Parent describes her spoken word performances as “Compelling and expertly honed. She can perfectly weave story into her crowd interactions, providing powerful sets that drop jaws and get audiences off their feet. Niccolea M Nance is an amazing and engaging artist.”

Niccolea’s published work, which she explains is “Drawn from personal life experiences and the stories of those closest to her”, can be found in Borderline, a cutting-edge online persona poetry journal and Canyon Voices, an Arizona State University journal for emerging writers. As of 2012 she has also had some of her work translated into Spanish for an anthology for the annual Horas de Junio writers’ symposium for the University of Sonora in Hermosillo, MX.b
