Sophie Love believes we have lost our connection to the land - to where food comes from, to the animals who feed us, Mother Nature who nurtures us, and the natural rhythms and seasons of life. She's passionate about a lot more besides and not afraid of baring her heart and soul both as catharsis and a way of reaching out to others. Sophie has lived a full and varied life, exploring both light and darkness. She is direct, forthright and has strong views about pretty much everything. For more information contact her

Sophie regularly writes for ABC's The Drum and the independent Online Opinion and is happy to write for you. Check out her published pieces below:
