Laetitia Laubscher

Due to the boredom induced by working quiet Friday night shifts at a surf shop, Laetitia began scribbling little fragments of poetry and stories on the backs of retail receipts around the age of 15. Since then, her writing has seen her throw herself out of a helicopter in Queenstown, trawl through Melbourne’s cafes for excellent cups of coffee, sail in the Bay of Islands and meet the likes of Flume, National Geographic photographer Steve Winter and the 2013 Astronomy Photographer of the Year Mark Gee. Follow her on Instagram @teeshlo.
