About Tanya Markul aka Thug Unicorn
Tanya Markul is a poetess, enchanted storyteller and creative midwife. She started writing when she was six-years old. She used to scribble lines on top of lines and called it ‘poetry’. Early in life she discovered emotional pain to be a sustainable resource for her work—and hasn’t stopped writing since. Her themes explore heartache, loss, abandonment, rejection and mental health. In her words, she writes for the ‘rejected ones’ and to ‘revolutionise pain’. Her quotes, stories, poems and prose have touched readers around the world. She hopes to be a source of inspiration and empowerment for years to come.
