Rose Cook has been out and about reading from her new poetry collection Notes From a Bright Field. This reviewer caught Rose at the Penzance Literary Festival, and blogged about her poetry on SkyLightRain.
I read her collection very quickly on the train travelling home, then, as I re-read them at a slower, less greedy pace, began to mark the pages containing descriptions that seem to me particularly to resonate. The only problem being that are so many most of the book is now crammed with tongues of torn paper.

Rebecca Gethin has also blogged about Rose Cook, and Rose is her latest featured writer:
Her poems are always deceptively simple and are full of striking imagery that can blow you away. Her voice is so assured and nuanced I can hear it in every word she writes: she is a skilled and captivating performer. Her latest collection, with an amazing image on the cover, is called Notes from a Bright Field where themes of identity and motherhood are explored.
