Rosie Johnston’s three poetry books are published by Lapwing Publications in Belfast. Her poems have appeared in various magazines, on the Poems and Pictures blog of the Mary Evans Picture Library website and in Live Canon’s ‘154 Project’ celebrating Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary. She has been the Cambridgeshire Wildlife Trust’s poet in residence since 2014 and reviews poetry for London Grip. Her two novels are The Most Intimate Place (Arcadia Books, London, 2009) & What You See Is What You Get (Wolfhound Press, Dublin, 2005).

Since 2011 Rosie has been running informal writing groups in London and Cambridge for new writers of all ages. She enjoys helping people who have never written fiction or non-fiction to develop the confidence to finish drafts, polish their story-telling skills and attract the attention of agents and publishers. Her weekly blogposts allow you to share in Rosie’s tips, shortcuts and writing exercises wherever you live.
