Course Information:

Rosie Jackson will read from her new collection Love Leans over the Table , poems that share spiritual struggles and epiphanies, both her own and those of well-known mystics including John Donne, George Fox, Simone Weil, Hildegard of Bingen, medieval anchorites, Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe. 

Graeme Ryan calls it ‘a remarkably compelling and readable autobiography of the spirit. The thread that runs through the whole book is the struggle to meet Love in all its questing and complexity; and to bear the radical, shocking demands of living as close to its truth as we can.’

Course Leader:  Rosie is an award-winning poet who has won 1st prize in many poetry competitions, and was commended in the National Poetry Competition 2023. She has received many accolades. Kim Moore writes of her ‘startling, moving  poems,’ while Bel Mooney describes her as ‘a rare poet of transcendence who expresses the inexplicable with grace.’
