Feating ROSIE GARLAND

Tagged ‘literary hero’ by The Skinny, Rosie Garland is a novelist, poet and singer with post-punk band The March Violets. She performs twisted music-hall songs as The Time-Travelling Suffragette.

With a passion for language nurtured by public libraries, her writing has been published worldwide. Apples and Snakes describe her as ‘one of the country’s finest performance poets’, and she’s received writing commissions from Bronte Parsonage Museum, Tate Modern and Women’s Words Manchester. Her latest poetry collection, As In Judy, is published by Flapjack Press.

Her firm belief in the power of persistence stems from personal experience. After 12 years and three agents (who failed to place her novels) she won the Mslexia Novel Competition with The Palace of Curiosities, which was nominated for both The Desmond Elliott and the Polari First Book Prize. Second novel Vixen was a Green Carnation Prize nominee. Her latest novel The Night Brother (Borough Press) was reviewed in The Times as "A rich and ambitious tale with shades of Angela Carter... Garland's prose is a delight: playful and exuberant.”
