Inspired by Solange’s A Seat at the Table, Water Carrier is Nakia’s debut collection of poetry. This intimate body of work is raw and heartfelt.
An intergenerational anthology featuring resilience stories written by girls and women of color ages 10-88 in Boston.
Nakia Hill specializes in managing creative writing spaces for under resourced youth and women of color. She writes through a non-fiction lens in the form of poetry and reflective personal narratives.
With a background in journalism, Nakia has fearlessly covered the Occupy Wall Street Movement and Trayvon Martin case. She has interviewed Academy Award-winning actress Monique, hip-hop legends KRS-One and Snoop Dogg.
Nakia is the founder of So Gutsy, a digital magazine chronicling the lives of independent music artists worldwide. Under her leadership she has served as a mentor and editor to more than 30 women through So Gutsy’s editorial internship program.
Nakia received her M.A. in print and multimedia journalism from Emerson College. She proudly obtained her B.A. in broadcast journalism from Howard University.
