Coming to you live from Cincinnati and Nashville

Nina Mariah | Smack That

Nina Mariah Donovan is a 23-year-old spoken word artist in the greater Nashville area. She found global attention when her poem “#NastyWoman” was read by Ashley Judd at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington and one of her recent poems, “MY QUEEN! JLO!”, was publicly praised by Jennifer Lopez herself. As a result of both recognitions, she has been featured on major media outlets such as Vice, BBC, and Vibe- and was hailed as one of three poets to watch by PBS News Hour in 2018! Donovan holds a B.S. in Sociology with a Women/Gender Studies and Jewish/Holocaust Studies double minor from Middle Tennessee State University and hopes to one day become a Women/Queer Media Studies and/or Social Problems professor. You can connect with her and her dog on Instagram: @itsninaziva and @itsdiamondangel, YouTube (Nina Mariah), and Facebook (Nina Mariah Donovan)- as well as purchase her newly released Chapbook Pearl by Simp Goddess or Nasty Shirts at
