About GK Kingsley

GK Kingsley is a poet and fiction writer most recognised for her inspiring, comforting, and amusingly witty verse.

Born and raised in the south of England, GK has been writing poetry since she was ten. However, it was a few decades later in 2012 that she gave birth to the illustrated poetry brand with which we are so familiar today.

Teaching herself how to use graphic design software, she started to create fun illustrations to accompany her poetical sound bites, and soon the GK Kingsley trademark style was alive and kicking.

GK’s bold and intuitive messages instantly connect with a reader’s inner concerns and reassure and amuse. Her relatable observations are intended to inspire, comfort, and bring cheer as you face challenges in your everyday world. When you read one of her pocket pick-me-ups, you come away feeling your day has improved – just a little – and you know that was a second of your life well spent.

In 2013, GK got her first ‘airing’ on BBC radio with a poem she wrote for World Poetry Day – Love. Since then, she’s appeared regularly on different radio channels, often summarising the week’s news in a fun and lively poem.

However, though connecting with people through the spoken word is still a rewarding side of her work, providing inspiration, comfort, and amusement to people in other ways is a passion that drives her forward.

Now, through her various printed collections, you can have a touch of GK’s upbeat approach in your home to spur you on.
