Named an icon of 21st-century poetry, Solli has broken barriers in making poetry more accessible and relatable for everyone. His poetry has racked up critical acclaim and awards, been featured in university textbooks and documentaries, and on over 50 radio and TV appearances. Solli's poetry and poetry performances have been seen by A-list celebrities, global CEOs, multiple prime ministers, members of the British Royal Family, and a quarter of the global population.
Solli has authored three books of his own, which have received accolades for their capacity to engage children and teenagers in poetry and social concerns. His debut book Limelight, and his second book, Spotlight, were published in 2018 and 2020, respectively. Shortly after publication in North America in 2019, Limelight won a prestigious Nautilus Book Award for contributing to social change. His latest book is 29 Things You Didn't Know About Me.
Solli is also an athlete, multi-instrumentalist, amateur adrenaline junkie, cook, and one of the youngest university students in Australia's history.
