Nico Wilkinson

Spoken word poet and organizer

Nico Wilkinson is a spoken word poet, community organizer, and tarot reader based in Colorado Springs. 

I'm a spoken word poet and organizer in Colorado Springs! My pronouns are they/them/theirs. 

I'm a community organizer. I host an open mic each month called "Keep Colorado Springs Queer," an open mic by and for the queer community of Colorado Springs. I also write for "Queer & There," a column in the Colorado Springs Independent.

I compete at poetry slams. In 2015 I was the Grand Slam Champion of Colorado Springs, and represented the city at the National Poetry Slam in Oakland, CA with the Hear, Here! team. 

In 2016, I released my first album, "good morning, cruel world." You can listen to it here. 

Inauguration, a book of poems (co-authored with Idris Goodwin) coming out on January 20, 2017 in response to the recent presidential election. The book will be available for free via Haymarket Books.
