Her honesty is disarming. Her words make our hearts sing. Her poetry is the perfect soundtrack to our lives.

We have a major poet crush on Morgan Harper Nichols. We’ve visited her Instagram profile so many times that it’s almost embarrassing. Almost.

Nichols hypnotizes us through design and color paired with her relatable words. We admire her creative process and courage to stand out. She is a breath of fresh air in a community with some same-ness going on.

Nichols comes from a background in music and continues her work in the industry today. She has been involved in various Grammy-nominated projects and has been a contributing writer to Billboard-topping songs.

Given Nichols’s music background, it’s not uncommon for her poems turn into songs. With her book, Storyteller: 100 Poem Letters, she gifts us a fresh take on her poetry, which she intends us to read more like letters.

Nichols is also on the board of directors at To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit organization whose mission is to spread hope to those struggling with addiction or self-harm and to invest in their recovery. Do we actually have the same amount of hours in a day as her? It floors us how powerful she is, and how real she stays in her prose.

Nichols shares insight into her motivation to continue to write and create via her Instagram profile. We hope she never stops.
