My name is Nathaniel. I am 14 years old! I live in the UK! Years ago, I started to write poetry and as I have continued to write and grow, every poem that I write is a revelation of who I am and how I feel. Imaginary narratives stem from my thoughts as well as the experiences I have had — I hope people can feel connected with my words when reflection upon their own lives.
As a young black boy, it is important that stories that are not normally given as much spotlight are expressed and highlighted and I am so thankful to Perspective Press Global for this opportunity! I am able to share my poetry with the world and communicate with words that are so powerful to me, and hopefully to you as well.
I am really excited for my first book to be published and I hope that you are able to dive head-on into the emotions packed into these poems and in the process, realise and appreciate yours.
