Poet and activist Winnie Nantongo earlier last week released her first poetry collection titled, the lover and her human.
the lover and her human is a collection of poetry about love, loss, grief, and empowerment. In this debut collection, Winnie is trusting you baring her soul as she takes you on her life journey in four sections; fall, break, heal, rise.
“It feels surreal to finally come to this very moment. It has taken me years to put all my thoughts and feelings together into a collection of poetry and today i’m trusting you baring my soul.” Winnie said in a press release.
Winnie has been writing poetry since she was a young girl but only started sharing her poems on Facebook and Instagram a few years ago. She has been working on this book for over two years now. This is her first published poetry book and she plans to write more books in the future.
Her work centers around love, growth, healing, inspiration, activism, and affirmations. Winnie’s stated goal is to assist people to develop their minds and hearts through poetry and storytelling.
