About the Writer

Lucca Olivia Munnik is a young woman from Cape Town that loves to write. She writes passionately and fiercely in the hopes of moving others like her writing moves her. She craves the act of writing, to feel her fingers touch the keyboard, for her hands to touch the pen. She writes in the early hours of the morning when written work is written best, and sometimes she’ll write when she is bored, but especially when she feels. Writing stems from the soul, it is catharsis for her, she lives through writing. These parts of her, little bits of writing here and there, combine to complete who she is which is exactly that, a writer.
