Writer & Poet
Nyah Hardmon is a writer and spoken word poet who believes the quality of a poet’s words trumps elaborate performances any day. She has been recognized for her spoken word talent as a YoungArts finalist and a nominee for a Presidential scholar in the arts. Whereas poetry allows Nyah to spit her own truth, off the stage, she is able to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves through the form of journalistic storytelling. Nyah’s writing has been featured in publications like Poetry Magazine and the Washington Independent Review of Books. She has collaborated with brands like Beats by Dre and The Washington Wizards, using her poetry as a means to both communicate and connect. As a music journalist, Nyah has also worked with Universal Music Group, Amazon Music and the Recording Academy.
