Commended poems featured in the Forward Anthology 2018.

Vanessa Kisuule’s second release is a poetry collection with a difference. It is a recipe book for personhood that changes with the whim of the seasons and the political climate. It is a cathartic explosion, an unspooling of long-harboured resentment and a delving into ugly truths. It is a feverish fistful of musings, a comedy of errors, an instruction manual, a broken compass and an overheard conversation in the ladies’ loo. It is at once a celebration of things to come and a mourning of things lost. It is a redefinition of what it is to be magical and otherworldly.

Vanessa Kisuule is a writer, performer, burlesque artist and general empress of blag based in Bristol. She also goes under the moniker Shonda Rhymez when she does rap battles and Nina Nunchucks when she graces burlesque stages. She has won over ten slam titles including The Roundhouse Slam 2014, Hammer and Tongue National Slam 2014 and the Nuoryican Poetry Slam. She has been featured on BBC iPlayer, Radio 1, and Radio 4's Woman's Hour, The Guardian, Blue Peter, Sky TV, Don't Flop and TEDx. She has performed up and down the country and internationally at Glastonbury, Vienna, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Finland, Germany, Bangladesh and New York. Her debut poetry collection 'Joyriding The Storm' was published in 2014. She was the recipient of The Jerwood Micro Arts Bursary in 2017 and the Leverhulme Arts Scholarship as part of the Bristol Old Vic Ferment programme. She was Bristol City Poet for 2019-20.
