Paper Girl and the Knives that Made Her (Paperback)


“I have never been anything but a paper girl. Something to tear into pieces. Something to burn.”

We’ve all been paper before. We’ve all been fragile. Leaflike and gently blowing, enough to create stories or build fires. We go through life like that. We come across things that tear us into pieces, and we keep going. We keep fighting, because we must. We look for ways to be whole. To be the person we dream ourselves to be. 

Fragile by nature but tough by circumstance, paper girls are shaped by their love and loss. This collection of poetry and prose describes the journey of learning to live fully through the messiness of life and tenuousness of mental health.
Ari B. Cofer is a poet and writer, the author of paper girl and the knives that made her and unfold. Shortly after receiving her bachelor’s degree in professional writing from Baylor University, she, her husband, and their two pets relocated to the Pacific Northwest. Ari’s work has curated an engaged audience on social media and has been widely featured in the media. While she enjoys a good love poem, she hopes to continue her mental health advocacy by writing on topics like depression, trauma, and recovery.
