Rose Cook has a new book of poetry

Rose Cook has a new book of poetry

Rose Cook’s Notes From a Bright Field is ‘a single quiet path, in and out’, capturing the transitory beauties of the everyday: a mother’s ashes imagined as ‘Lux flakes’; the ‘fruit-gummed glass’ of a cathedral. Where the poems’ themes are of nature, loss and the spiritual, these are grounded in concrete imagery like ‘the clack-clack of the shell and the bones’.

Notes from a Bright Field is available from Rose, Cultured Llama, your local bookshop or Amazon
Paperback; 104pp; 978-0-9568921-9-5; July 2013; Cultured Llama; £8.00 http://www.culturedllama.co.uk/notes-from-a-bright-field
Rose Cook is one of the South-West’s best loved poets, having performed extensively in venues such as the Soho Theatre in London, the Bristol Poetry Festival and Dartington’s Ways With Words Literature Festival, as well as a variety of local poetry events. She is an Apples & Snakes poet and has appeared at the North Devon Festival in Barnstaple, Plymouth’s Barbican theatre, Exeter Phoenix’s Text Festival and a Peterloo Poets event in Cornwall.

Rose co-founded the popular Devon poetry and performance forum One Night Stanza, as well as poetry performance group Dangerous Cardigans. Her work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Devon and local SoundArt radio.
