Ebury Press has acquired a “powerful new collection of feminist mythical retellings” from poet Nikita Gill.
Editorial director Emma Smith acquired world all language rights to Gill’s brand new collection of writing, Great Goddesses, to be published on 5th September 2019.
Inspired by ancient Greek mythology, “Nikita in her inimitable poetry and prose, tells the stories of the mothers, warriors, creators, survivors and destroyers that shook the world. Accompanied by hand-drawn illustrations, Nikita weaves old and forgotten tales of might, fury and love into something new – a timely feminist inspiration for modern women.”
Smith said: “Nikita has an incredible ability to imbue ancient stories with modern magic so I am thrilled to be publishing her new book at Ebury. While having over half a million followers online, Great Goddesses showcases the true depth and wonder of Nikita’s writing and will be a book to treasure. I can’t wait for even more readers to discover her beautiful and timely words.”
