Rosemary Norman

Rosemary Norman was born in London and has worked mainly as a librarian. She began writing and even publishing as a child but her first full collection, Threats and Promises, did not appear until 1991. Shoestring Press published her second collection, Italics, in 2010. Between came two pamphlets from Hearing Eye, Life on Mars and The Song of the Nobird.

With video artist Stuart Pound, she makes poetry films where the poem is image or soundtrack and sometimes both. Their work is screened regularly at film festivals and can be viewed on Vimeo.
