Nikki Marrone

Spoken Word | Writing | Photography

Nikki Marrone is a spoken word performer, published poet, photographer and wearer of many hats. She is motivated through feelings, of which she has plenty. When she’s not wandering around the world or documenting her adventures, she splits her time between motherhood, performing, creating and starving as an artist.

Nikki is the winner of multiple poetry slams and has featured at various spoken word nights and festivals internationally, but is based in the UK. She has been involved in running some great projects such as Hammer & Tongue Cambridge, Wild Strawberries Festival Stage, Point Positive Publishing and Allographic. In 2016, she co-founded the In Other Words Festival and published her first anthology of local poets. She has had some great opportunities over the years but the most notable to mention would be: Architects of Our Republic – a project commissioned by Apples & Snakes, Walking with Women – a project commissioned by Hollie McNish, Cambridge Stem Cell Institute exhibition and anthology, and an exhibition with Cambridge Festival of Ideas. She has performed for Soapbox Presents, Apples & Snakes, CB1 Poetry, Fen Speak and many others.

She has most recently been published by Indie Blue Publishing, Animal Heart Press, Poems for Peace, Shades of Pride and Highveld Poetry Review. In 2018, she self-published her first collection of work Lost and Found: A Poetry Passport and in 2020 published the photographic novel Honey & Lemon through Point Positive Publishing.
