Kimolisa Mings was born on the small island of Antigua. She started writing poetry after she was encouraged to do so by her English teacher, Ms. Joseph. Although her body of work grew with the passing of years, it was only in 2005 that Kimolisa started to share her work at local open mic events. In 2008, she started a blog called Kim or Lisa, where one can find her older poems and her latest poems. In 2011, Kimolisa won the Independence Literary Award for Poetry in the adult division. In 2012, one of her poems was featured in "When A Woman Moans", a local twist on the Vagina Monologues. Kimolisa self-published the short story eBook, Martine in 2012. She is now working on her latest book, a collection of poems.
