Author, Teacher, Editor
Nikia Hunt is a native Nebraskan who once wandered too far from home and ended up in Colorado. Her muse fell in love with the mountainscape and the nature within it and she has been writing and teaching with a view ever since.
Heavily influenced by everything gothic and twisted, Nikia’s work is generally centered in finding literary beauty in everyday life, especially in the more macabre and sometimes traumatizing parts. Along with reality-based memoir, she focuses largely on fantasy fiction, young adult fantasy, and darkly expressive poetry.
Nikia has always had an active imagination as well as an affinity for literature.
These traits evolved into a passion for both writing and teaching.
Nikia has been writing for as long as she can remember and has been teaching English Language Arts since 2015.
A graduate of the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a Master's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing, Nikia has recently focused more strongly on developing her professional writing career.
Additionally, Nikia has been involved in the Pikes Peak Writers in the role of Sponsorship Coordinator since January of 2020, has been published in several trade publications and educational journals, and will be published in the "Fresh Starts" Anthology in winter of 2021.
Nikia Hunt is extremely proud and excited to share some of her latest work in the form of memoir, "Agony in Ages" as featured in the Pikes Peak Writers Anthology "Fresh Starts" coming later in 2021.
