As a 21-year-old university student Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first poetry collection, ‘milk and honey’. Next came its artistic sibling, ‘the sun and her flowers’. These collections have sold more than 10 million copies and have been translated into over 40 languages. Her most recent book, ‘home body’, debuted #1 on bestsellers lists across the world. In 2021, Rupi executive produced and starred in her debut film, ‘Rupi Kaur Live’, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Rupi’s just released fourth book ‘healing through words’ presents more than sixty guided writing activities based on the themes of her first book, ‘milk with honey’. Within the book, Kaur shares her writing tips, tricks and secrets and helps readers explore themes of loss, love, heartbreak, and healing. The guided writing exercises are for anyone who wishes to feel more connected to themselves. Designed by Rupi, the beautifully rendered hardcover will be an instrument of healing and treasured volume for her passionate following around the world. At its conclusion, Rupi reminds readers, the journey isn’t over – it’s just the beginning.
