I-Sis, originally from Trinidad, in the Caribbean, is based in West London, she describes herself as an Eclectic Afrikan Centric Poet, “Your [I Sis] voice is expressive and your ideas are well thought out, and have impact ”.
She draws inspiration from her activism and engagement with Pan Afrikan politics and campaigning against structural injustice over the last 30 years.

I Sis is passionate about WORDplay, the elasticity of language, playing with words, language is the prize of the victor, the tool of the oppressor . She has a MA in Black British Writing.
