With poetry Buzzfeed claims “will leave you speechless,” Nic is incredibly grateful that anybody wants to hear the poetry they write to survive. Embraced by Seattle’s LGBTQ writing community at 18-years-old, Nic has since gone to perform locally and nationally in cities like Portland, Los Angeles, and New York. Nic’s piece, “My Gender Is for Mothers” - originally written for the University of Washington’s The ____ Monologues - has been highlighted by College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) 2013, Autostraddle, Buzzfeed, 18millionRising, and The Shade Journal. Nic is currently writing and recording spoken word for their DARK AT DUSK: The Final Suicide project as part of their Artist Support Program residency at Jack Straw Cultural Center. As a writer, Nic ultimately aims to reflect current times and rewrite a more just future - now.
