I love to read too, although I don’t believe I read quite as much as I should.
The genres that captivate me are surrealist fantasy & adventure although I have been known to enjoy a good dystopia, science fiction and a few literary novels.

I also write a monthly article over at the Creative Countryside journal & sometimes for their seasonal magazine.
I’m the Folklore editor and get to celebrate and share my love of the mysterious lore of this world.Off in the distance the sun begins to set in a sleepy unhurried fashion. The colors swirl together in a muddled mass across the sky.The gluey substance formed is untouchable by any marketed adhesive. I smooth, pile, pound, and shape my massive sand castle into perfection.Please do take a look around and enjoy the random combinations of words that I’ve thrown together in my bid to better understand myself, the world around me and celebrate my love of nature & the mysterious ocean.An essential service of Rose Writers are the weekly workshops.What you might not know, is that I studied BA Creative Writing at University. Photography was a means of storytelling for me, a visual way to express a narrative.I adore photography but when I’m not behind the lens, you’ll often find me sat in a cosy nook or cranny in a pub or coffee shop as close to the sea as possible dreaming up words.I also adore reading plays which compelled me to impulsively choose a playwriting module at Uni (with no previous experience) which I absolutely adored and wrote my first (slightly strange) play. I’m not sure what fascinates me so much about it, but it’s this idea of introducing a philosophy and evoking an emotional journey in as few a possible words.I love the fleeting sensation of these emotions that have bubbled to the surface and subsequently floated away like steam.Whether you’re planning a trip to the beach or you’re just dreaming about warm summer weather, this motivating writing project is a must-try activity for kindergarten or first grade.Grab your copy below and then hop over to snag our free writing rubric pages too.
