Biography

Award-winning creator and bestselling poet, Dakota Warren is working on her debut novel.

Dakota Warren is a poetess turned novelist who clambered her way out of rural Australia to chase her dreams of the arts across the seas.

Dakota’s background in dance and performance (having trained with the National Theatre) kept her busy as she wrote poetry and streams of consciousness for her blog, under alias Nowhere Girl, and for indie magazines including Fluff and Pure Nowhere. In 2021, whilst at university for literature and creative writing, Dakota was scouted to publish her debut poetry anthology On Sun Swallowing, which was a finalist for the Goodreads Choice Best Poetry Book of 2022. She has toured Australia, England, Scotland, and Ireland – soon to include the United States – to perform her poetry at sold-out events. Inspired by those audiences, who hold the same dreams as her, Dakota launched a literary and arts journal, Nowhere Girl Collective, to spotlight and platform aspiring and established artists alike.

In 2023 Dakota was crowned bCreator’s Book Creator of the Year for creating content cross-platform for her 750,000+ followers centred on literature and the arts to bridge the gap between art and accessibility amongst youth. Dakota has collaborated with the Tate Collective, the Barbican Centre, the Royal Opera House, the Booker Prizes, and Hay Festival with TikTok as a representative of #BookTok – just to name a few.

Dakota is working on her debut novel, a sapphic tale of obsessive first love set across one sticky summer in late 1960s Australia. It is a commentary on the relationship between an artist and their muse and an account of relentless girlhood.
