In 2019, she was commissioned by Penguin Classics to write an introduction for a new edition of Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet, in anticipation of that book entering the public domain in the United States.
As Kaur rose to prominence on social media, milk and honey was re-released by Andrews McMeel Publishing. Book sales of milk and honey surpassed the 2.5 million copy mark. The book was on The New York Times Best Seller list for over 77 weeks. Milk and Honey has since been translated into 25 languages. In the United Kingdom, Kaur was credited with an increase in poetry sales seen in 2017.
Her second book, The Sun and Her Flowers, was published on 3 October 2017.
In March 2015, Kaur posted a series of photographs to Instagram depicting herself with menstrual blood stains on her clothing and bed sheets. Described as a piece of visual poetry, it formed her final project for her undergraduate studies and is considered as among her more notable works; intended to challenge prevalent societal menstrual taboos. They were pulled down for not complying with the site’s terms of service. Instagram brought back the images, citing a mistaken removal, and apologized to her after being criticized for displaying the very response that the works were intended to critique. The incident is credited with bringing Kaur more followers and the subsequent rise in popularity of her poetry.
Kaur’s first book, an anthology titled milk and honey, was self-published on Createspace on 4 November 2014. Her inspiration for the book’s name came from a past poem which included a line about women surviving terrible times. She describes the change in the women as, “smooth as milk and as thick as honey.” A collection of observations, prose, and hand-drawn illustrations, the book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter depicts a different theme.
Kaur draws inspiration from Sikh scriptures. The experience of learning English upon moving to Canada has influenced her writing style. She is also influenced by her heritage. Part of her signature writing style includes a complete lack of capital letters, and the use of just one form of punctuation—the period. Both of these techniques are features of Punjabi which she has imported into her English writing as a way of connecting back to the place and culture of her origin.
Kaur notes her first performance to be in the basement of the Punjabi Community Health Centre in Malton around 2009. Throughout her high school, Kaur shared her writing anonymously. From 2013 onward, she began sharing her work under her own name on Tumblr before taking to Instagram in 2014, in which she also started adding simple thematic illustrations.
