Rosemary McLeish is a poet and an outsider artist. A late starter, she began to write when she was around 40. She has had poems published in many anthologies and magazines, self-published two pamphlets, and her first collection, I am a Field, was published early in 2019. In December 2018 she won 2nd Prize in the MsLexia/PBS poetry competition, and in January 2019 2nd prize in the Bedford International poetry competition. She has frequently displayed poems in exhibitions and made some of them into artworks. She has an MPhil in Creative Writing from Glasgow University (2005).
Rosemary will be reading selected poems from her collection and will be talking to Angela Dye about her work and influences. This will be followed by readings of Rosemary's works by friends and fellow poets Barry Fentiman-Hall, Clare Meyrick and others.
