TWO reviews (in Historia Magazine & Northern Soul) of ‘Making Thunder Roar’ at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, and both say great things about my commissioned poem: “Stand-outs are Rosie Garland’s fiery poem, which perfectly captures Emily’s small world and her all-consuming creative drive”

Plus - here's a picture of the display case and my poem in-situ. Enjoy!
