Guwahati: Nagaland poet Tialila Kikon's poem has been selected by the Writers International Network (WIN) Canada to be displayed at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre in Vancouver, Canada on World Poetry Day on March 21.

As per Kikon, five of her poems have been shortlisted by WIN Canada. Of these, one will be finally selected to be put up for display on March 21.

Based in Dimapur, Kikon pens down her thoughts on a lot of issues regarding life, love, humanity, hope, etc. The 45-year-old poet was mentioned in the list of the '100 most incredible instapoets' for the year 2018 on Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/soulscape73/?hl=en is her official Instagram page, where we can find most of her works.

Incidentally, the St Joseph's College, Jakhama graduate's work is being displayed for the second time at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre on World Poetry day -- the first was in 2016.

Being a closet poet for a long time, Kikon morphed out of her cocoon with her poem 'Humans Beings As We Are'. The poem was selected as the 'top 100 poems of 2015' by Poetry First Publishing International. Since then, there has no looking back from Kikon, who did her post-graduation in English literature at NEHU Shillong.
