"The passion this woman has in her poetry makes me smile as wide as my jaws will allow “
- Hollie McNish

"Rachel Nwokoro, such an electric and beautifully worded poet”
- Patrick Cash

"Rachel Nwokoro uses her voice and actions beautifully..... This is more than sarcasm – cleverer and with a message : This is what you thought of me, but this is what I am. It is a talented display of what a performer can bring to a piece.”
- John Wheeler

"I haven't been moved by poetry like that since I saw Amy León. Only other time a poet has literally had me in tears."
- Phoebe Petridis

“Rachel Nwokoro is a fist fight at the Women's Institute. Her poetry is uncompromising, fiery and unflinching. A charming assassin. Go see her.”
- Joelle Taylor

“Breaktakingly adept at cutting right to the heart of everything she tackles. Rachel is an incredible writer, a spell-binding performer and a wonderful human being.”
- Matt Cummins

“She’s alright.”
- Her Brothers
