ROSELLE ANGWIN is a much-published author, poet and writer of creative non-fiction who is known in Britain and abroad for her 29-year-long Fire in the Head creative and reflective writing programme, and her more recent The Wild Ways which is designed to promote environmental awareness through creative writing time outdoors.
To date her books number 11, with various pamphlets and chapbooks (some collaborations) in addition.
She’s been the recipient of Arts Council England awards for her own creative work, as well as as organiser of a small Dartmoor literary festival, and has tutored for very many organisations from the Arvon Foundation, the Poetry School and the Poetry Society to the Open College of the Arts, the National Trust, Dartmoor National Park, Oxford University Creative Writing Summer School and various arts organisations and schools and colleges here and abroad.
Her poetry has been displayed on buses and cathedral websites, has appeared in numerous anthologies, been etched into glass, hung from trees, towed behind bicycles, printed on T-shirts, carved into stone, metal and wood, painted, sung, composed to, choreographed, danced, performed and eaten by sheep (accidentally, but as part of a Year of the Artist project at Hestercombe Gardens in Somerset).
Her latest project is ‘A Spell in the Forest – Tongues in Trees’, a narrative non-fiction book rooted in her Tongues in Trees yearlong course. ’Spell’ combines memoir with forest lore rooted in the Celtic Tree Calendar. This book will be published by Moon Books in 2021.
