Warm welcome to our new listeners, be sure to follow us on Instagram @88CUPSOFTEA to keep up with our latest posts and Instagram stories where we announce new episodes and essays,  feature our favorite quotes, and host Instagram Story takeovers by some of your favorite authors! 


Curious to discover ways to uncover your inner voice? Or how to embrace vulnerability when telling your story? How about ways to practice self-care when crafting difficult scenes? We talk about it all and more with Jasmin Kaur.

Jasmin is a writer, illustrator, and spoken word artist exploring themes of feminism, womanhood, social justice and love, acts as a means of healing and reclaiming identity. She was named The Tempests’ 40 Women to Watch in 2019 and has been celebrated at the American Music Awards. Her debut poetry and prose collection, “When You Ask Me Where I’m Going” releases October 1st. 

In our conversation brought to you by Epic Reads, we talk about Jasmin’s love for story and her passion for highlighting her identity and creating representation in her art. We also talk about how she uncovered her inner authentic voice, ways to recognize when you’re holding back and self-censoring your writing voice, and how to amplify your vulnerability so it flows naturally in your writing. We discuss her highly-anticipated debut “When You Ask Me Where I’m Going” and why she chose to format the book’s structure the way she did. Be sure to keep your ears out for Jasmin’s powerful poetry reading in the later half of this episode. Afterwards, head over to our Instagram @88CupsOfTea ‘cause Jasmin will be taking over our Instagram Stories on Monday, September 30th!
