You can't be Rapuzel forever.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel is a collection of poems, a fairy tale of modern life, growing up and falling in love. Or not.

Divided into five different parts, Rapunzel, Rapunzel explores the impact of anxiety and bullying, and the strength of love, for others and for ourselves. It muses on the difficulty of discovering who we are and how the masks we wear affect our lives and relationships.

Most of all, Rapunzel, Rapunzel is about embracing all aspects of yourself, even the ones you’re scared to show, and finding strength in who you are as a person.


fairytale retelling, what if Rapunzel actually LIKES being in her tower and isn’t trapped at all, friendship break-up, introversion, growing up, effects of bullying, self-empowerment, girls don’t need a man, being introverted is fine, IDEK, verse novel, love people how they are, friendship is love too, but wow are we accustomed to using romance tropes to explore anything like that


It was a long time ago.
A long, long time ago
In a kingdom far away
As far away as imagination can take you.

But also next door.
In your classroom.
In your heart.

Once upon a time there was
A little girl who could be anything
Anything at all.

And one day
She would grow up.
