Caitlin Brooke is a 22-year-old girl from New South Wales Australia. From a young age, she quickly realised the power poetry had and it became a passion. Writing soon became a safe space for Caitlin during some of her darkest times. By sharing her writing and illustrations with the world, she hopes she can create that safe space for everyone else. ‘growing pains’ is Caitlin’s first published collection; this book was inspired by her own journey through young love and heartbreak. This book contains everything she wished she could have known along her healing journey. Please let me know if you’re happy to do this. Thank you so much!
