PUBLISHER - BURNING EYE BOOKS
Little You is Rachel Nwokoro’s debut poetry collection. With poignance, precision and passion, Rachel takes us on a five-part journey through difficult topics with a unique humour that shows the resilience of her spirit and the strength of this young woman’s heart. Rachel completed her first poem How Much? after being harassed by a pizza delivery man near her family home in London and since then, poetry has been a safe place to explore the inexpressible; those aspects of being human that tend to stick in your throat. A magical mix of writing and touching illustrations by loved ones.
Rachel is a young woman of Nigerian heritage, specifically belonging to the Indigenous people of Biafra. And she loves telling stories. As a multidisciplinary artist (actor, writer, director etc), Rachel has performed nationally and internationally and has worked with the RSC, Royal Court, Soho Theatre, Lyric Theatre, Her Majesty's Theatre, Actors Centre, ITV, Nationwide, Sky News, NSPCC, Nickelodeon, Birmingham Opera Company, Saatchi and Saatchi, Fortnum and Mason, Thames Festival Trust, Stonewall UK, Sofar Sounds, Shambala Festival, Brainchild Festival as well as many other renowned organisations worldwide. She was invited to be the first international poet-in-residence in Mexico and has also won a number of awards and competitions, most notably the 2016 National Slam Poetry Champion.
