The Authors

Njeri Wangare is a multi talented Kenyan poet and performer, IT specialist and arts blogger.

Njeri’s love for the arts began at an early age through her appreciation of African culture. This, she found to be well expressed in many of the books that she started reading while still young and they have shaped the person she has now become.

She penned her first poem in 2004. Three years later she made her first attempt in front of an audience, performing her poetry. She is now among the most talented Kenyan poets and performers.

Njeri’s blog www.Kenyanpoet.blogspot.com has been running for more than three years. It has since grown to incorporate other forms of art as well as host other poets. She has contributed immensely to the promotion of Kenyan Poetry not only on stage but also through the Internet through her reviews on art performances and by encouraging up and coming poets to start blogs and eventually share their work through performance. She is currently part of the Global Voices Online - an online portal for citizen journalists, as a writer on African Arts.

Njeri Wangare has established herself as the voice of reason and change in the Kenyan poetry circles, mainly due to the content and theme of her poems which range from Culture, religion, human rights, technology and everyday challenges in the Kenyan society.
