Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. As a twenty-one-year-old university student, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first poetry collection, milk and honey. Next came its artistic siblings, the sun and her flowers and home body. These collections have sold over 11 million copies and have been translated into over forty-three languages. Most recently in 2022, she released Healing Through Words, a journey of guided writing exercises to help readers explore their own creativity. As she has done from the very beginning, Rupi self-produced Rupi Kaur Live, the first poetry special of its kind, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video in 2021. Rupi Kaur graces stages across the globe on sold-out world tours. These shows are a poetic theatrical experience interlaced with her own touch of stand-up. Her work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, and migration. She feels most at home when creating art, performing her poetry onstage, and spending time with family and friends.
