Alisha Lockley is an author, short film producer, poet, spoken word artist, Tedx speaker, Sagittarius, and tea enthusiast. She studied performance theatre at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and majored in English with a minor in African Diaspora studies at the University of North Florida. Equally enamored by both theatre and literature, she is always delighted to share her love of an art-form that merges the two, performance poetry. She believes that poetry is about illustrating the smaller moments suspended between connections that are often overlooked. It's about breathing life into the story and making it seem tangible. She has published The Book of Hims, a collection of poetic works that explores the mundane, humorous, and painful beauties of the human condition. The poems range from topics of spirituality, heartbreak, sexuality, mental health, to defiant expressions that challenge the norms of socially constructed masculinity and femininity.
