Life is hard, and so is growing up – no matter how old we are.

Growing Pains is a weekly newsletter all about the sometimes painful, sometimes brilliant process of becoming a fully-fledged human being, brought to you directly from the brain of someone trying her best to be just that.

Subscribe (for free!) and you’ll get a short personal essay delivered straight to your inbox every Wednesday morning, as well as a collection of recommendations from me of the best stuff I’ve read/watched/listened to that week.

You’ll also get early access to the book I’m working on – if I ever get over my imposter syndrome enough to finish it!

So – me, you, your inbox, next Wednesday? I look forward to getting to know you better.

About Me

Hi! I'm Sophie.

Writer, thinker, introvert. I like to talk about film, feelings and feminism. Not necessarily in that order.
