Rosemary is a queer writer living in East Anglia and a graduate of Sidney Sussex college. She writes in snatched, coffee-fuelled moments and has had her work published in Mslexia, The Fenland Reed, Spontaneity and The Wellington Street Review. She often explores the intersections between the past and the present in her work, when she gets time to write. She tweets about poetry, chiefly to procrastinate, @BluestockingBks.
Winner of the Costa 2019 Poetry Award, Mary Jean Chan’s debut collection, Flèche, deftly explores the conflicts and desires of a queer woman, the multiplicity of identity, and the power felt when wielding a sword.
