Roselle Angwin

About the Author

Roselle Angwin was born in Cornwall and has lived most of her life in Devon. She read Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic at Cambridge, and followed this with a training in Transpersonal Psychotherapy.

Her writing as well as the holistic courses she’s been leading here and abroad, indoors and out-, and with all age groups for 26 years draws together her passion for the natural world and environmentalism, her interest in British mythology and enchantment, and her commitment to the psychospiritual.

At the same time, she’s a rigorous tutor, as well as being warm and encouraging. Her first (Plymouth-based) 9-month novel course was featured in The Guardian in 1998, and many of her students are now published.
