about

She combs her hair long, a black sheet / to cover the new mouth at the back / of her neck, where angry stories leak out...

Behind the scenes in the life and mind of the award-winning poet, novelist, groundbreaking performance artist and singer with The March Violets, Rosie Garland (as in Judy).

"One of the reasons I love Rosie's work so much is because she provides food for thought. She addresses issues that need addressing, and imagines the inner and outer landscapes we all inhabit with eloquence and grace. Shine your light, Rosie." - David Hoyle

"You spend all that time trying to understand the world, its family relationships, friendships, social systems through a serial adventure of episodes mundane and or memorable. You spend all that time trying to fit into the human. Then, you are propelled into realisation through a life-threatening disease. Travelling not outward into the world but inward to the beating heart of the matter, you dive deep into the DNA. You are the resplendent there. You are the clicking queen of the insects. When you dress again in flesh and skin, you go amongst the sleeping humans and new and glittering worlds are left in your wake. Welcome to Rosie Garland!" - John Hyatt

Recently named 'literary hero' by The Skinny, Rosie is an award-winning poet, novelist and singer with post-punk band The March Violets. With a passion for language nurtured by libraries, she started out in spoken word, garnering praise from Apples and Snakes as 'one of the country's finest performance poets'. Her firm belief in the power of persistence stems from personal experience. Following twelve years at a reputable literary agency (who failed to place her novels), she entered the 2011 Mslexia Novel Competition and won. This debut novel was published as The Palace of Curiosities (HarperCollins, 2013) and was nominated for both The Desmond Elliott and the Polari First Book Prize. Second novel, Vixen (Borough Press, 2014), was a Green Carnation Prize nominee. Her next novel, The Night Brother, is published June 2017.
