Rosie Shepperd and Katrina Naomi at Wenlock Poetry Festival
Katrina Naomi, Rosie Shepperd
Rosie Shepperd’s debut collection The Man At The Corner Table has been widely praised for its sophisticated blend of elegance, subversion and unexpected imagery. As the actor Juliet Stevenson says, ‘Rosie Shepperd’s is a startlingly original voice. She captures the intensity of a movement, frames it in vivid imagery, shot through with sensuality and wit. Her rhythms have the rigour and restlessness of really good jazz.’
The vivacious and playful Katrina Naomi’s earthy lyricism is equally compelling. Fresh from the success of her 2015 pamphlet Hooligans (inspired by the Suffragettes), she will be reading from her brand new collection, The Way the Crocodile Taught Me.
