Writer Biography - Nattalie Gordon

NATTALIE GORDON ​was born in Westmoreland parish, Jamaica. She describes herself as a “recently introverted, weird, self motivator.”
Growing up on a farm with both parents and an older sister, she learned to read fluently in Kindergarten as they had neither TV nor games. Books were the only things that were free so she learned to read them by age 5.
She describes her summers as really hot days spent working on the farm with her father, picking coffee beans or watering the cows.
Nattalie moved from the country to Kingston, Jamaica’s capital at age nineteen, three years after graduating high school. She went to look for work as her parents could not afford college, according to her she spent her entire time in high school wondering when she’d drop out due to lack of finances. Luckily she made it to graduation.
She started writing more to combat depression and decided to enter writing contests.
In 2008 she entered an annual reading competition at her local library and was the National Runner-Up. She re-entered in 2010 where she won.
She’s won several awards for poetry and prose as well as spots in coveted Playwriting festivals.
Some of her work include gold medal winning poem ​New Shoes Blues ​as well as plays such as ​Cooter Soup ​and T​ he Butterfly is Gone.
Nattalie’s website features numerous writing samples.
She currently volunteers at her local theatre and is a freelance writer for Curve magazine.
