Morgan Harper Nichols
Morgan Harper Nichols is a musician, artist, and poet. She was born February 4, 1990 in Los Angeles, California as Morgan Novelate Harper, and was the daughter of Bishop James Henry Harper, a preacher, and Pastor Mona Nanette Harper, his wife.

In 1993, the family moved to Georgia, where her parents started Kingdom City Church in Stone Mountain. Morgan and Jamie Grace, her younger sister, were home schooled when they were growing up.

Morgan, at the age of sixteen, she started attending Point University and singing her songs at local coffee shops. She got her Bachelor of Arts in English and would later pursue her Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. After she graduated, she worked as a college admissions counselor for a number of years.

At the age of fifteen, she started writing songs, before she even began singing or playing the guitar.

She wrote and performed a song called “Doesn’t Take Stars to Shine”, in 2007, which was used in Bratz: The Movie as part of the talent show in the movie. It opened opportunities for her, and allowed her to open for acts like Ken Ford, a jazz violinist. That same year, she began her first national tour, “Singing for College”, where she raised enough money for her college tuition in select American cities like Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and St. Louis.

It was during this time on the road where she cultivated her passion and curiosity for art, writing, and design, and she slowly started sharing her work online.

In the year 2017, she began a writing project where she wrote personalized letters to strangers as part of a goal she set to write a million poems to strangers during her lifetime. People are invited to submit to her their stories on her site, and she writes back a brief letter of encouragement that is paired with visual art. It is sent to them for free and then shared anonymously on social media, too. She does this as her daily practice of generosity and to connect with people on a heart-level. Her art and her words are created solely on her iPad Pro.

Morgan’s debut book, called “Storyteller”, was released in 2017. It contains a hundred poems that were written like letters.

She launched a blog, Garden24, in an effort to share her artwork in a much more permanent fashion rather than through Instagram. The blog is referred as being “a garden—of community, gathering, and art. And it lives on as a reminder that when we plant together, we bloom”.

Morgan has collaborated with a wide range of brands that include Aerie, Coach, Vogue Singapore, and Adobe, as well as others. Being an author and designer, her work’s been available in many stores, including Barnes and Noble, Anthropologie, and Target.

She interviews storytellers on finding meaning and peace in work and life on her podcast, The Morgan Harper Nichols Show, which she started in 2019. Morgan releases an episode each morning, five days a week.

She is married to Patrick Kekoa Nichols, a tour manager. They married on October 17, 2010, and welcomed their first baby, Jacob Henry Kekoa Nichols, on May 30, 2019.

Morgan is on the board of directors of a non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms.

“Forty Days on Being a Five” is a collection of readings. What’s it like to be an Enneagram Five? Morgan reflects on this question in a spirit of honest self-assessment and with a desire for spiritual and personal growth. She pulls wisdom from the deep wells of spirituality and counseling and uses illustrations from both life and from Scripture.

Each of these forty readings end with the chance for further engagement like a spiritual practice, a prayer, or a reflection question. Her art enhances the readings, too. Any one of us is able to find some aspects of ourselves in any of these numbers.

The Enneagram is a profound tool for empathy, so whether you are a Five or not, you’ll grow from your reading about other Fives and enhance your relationships all across the Enneagram spectrum.

“Storyteller” is a poetry collection, released in 2017. For more than ten years, many of the poems and stories Morgan’s written have been turned into songs, something she’s grateful for.

During the year before this book was released, much of what she wrote has become letters. To people, their stories, and the seasons they’re in. Even though she supposes what can be found in this book is technically poetry, she hopes they’ll be read like letters. Letters for places, people, seasons, years, and things.

She shared this book with the world because she believes that we all have a story to tell and that this book will encourage readers to continue telling them.

“All Along You Were Blooming” is a poetry collection, released in 2020. An encounter with grace. An anthem of freedom. A celebration of hope. A healing of wounds. A restoration of the heart. This poetry collection is the ultimate love letter from a popular Instagram poet right to your heart, mind, soul, and body.

This is a striking collection of illustrated prose and poetry, inviting you to stumble out into the sunlight and delight in the boundless and wild grace that you have been given.

Morgan reminds us of something very important. There is a purpose in every season. No matter how you wish to race on through this day or run off from this place, you’re invited to live fully right here and now. Light’s always going to find you, even once the sun has set and you sit just waiting for the dawn. That you’re always blooming in the way that you were always meant to.

“How Far You’ve Come” is a poetry collection, released in 2021. An exquisitely illustrated collection of essays and poetry.

In the midst of the mundane and the hurt, the not-yets and the questions, we can just forget about how far we have come. Morgan weaves together some of her own personal reflections with some of her signature poems to share her journey to reclaim moments of division, brokenness, and pain and then reimagine them as experiences of hope, reconciliation, and unity.
