Hey! My name is Nkosi, former Director of Written Content for chess.com. I'm a USCF expert-rated chess player (tryna get to master) and a multi-disciplinarian artist/poet. 

Here are some of my favorite pieces I published here:

The 7 Best Chess Movie Scenes

12 Years Later, "Brooklyn Castle" Star, Now Lawyer, Reflects On The Chess World!

WIM Dolly Teasley Recalls Her Life In Chess

My poetry has been published in The Nation, The Best American Poetry anthology, Oxford Poetry, Poetry Northwest, and more. My life has been thankfully gifted with opportunities to teach chess and poetry to children.

I'm OBSESSED with Square Poems! These are poems to be read both horizontally and vertically. Sound familiar? Check out my poem "The Chessmen." Anything that bridges literature and chess is an absolute dream for me!
