Nicola Kirk


Nicola Kirk has worked in education for many years and now works in mental health. She loved reading and listening to poetry from a young age. She says, "I wrote a lot in my angst-ridden teens and early twenties, but for many years after that I neglected to write. I am now starting to remedy that after attending the MAKING PIES: 6 workshops for the closet poet with the City of Poets, followed by 1:1 tutorials which have raised my confidence and inspired my creativity once again. I am enjoying observing the world around me from a new perspective, looking out for the inspiration for my next poem."

Connection to Glasgow

Nicola Kirk has lived in Glasgow for most of her life now, after moving from West Yorkshire at the age of sixteen. "I love the place and the people, especially the humour, and like to think I am an adopted Glaswegian."
