Ros Barber is author of verse novel The Marlowe Papers and three collections of poetry; two with Anvil, the most recent (Material, 2008) a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. The Marlowe Papers, which has been critically acclaimed, is published by Sceptre (2012) in the US and St Martins Press (2013) in the US. In 2011, pre-publication, it was joint winner of the Annual Calvin & Rose G Hoffmann Prize 2011 for a distinguished work on Christopher Marlowe.She has had poems published in Faber, Virago, Forward, and Seren anthologies, including Faber’s Poems of the Decade, and her short fiction has been published by Bloomsbury and Serpents Tail. Her poems have also appeared in The Guardian & the Independent on Sunday.
Since 2000 Ros Barber has undertaken numerous public art commissions. A book of narrative poems for the Isle of Sheppey was short-listed for SEEDA’s Award for Art in Public Places 2004. Moreover, she has over a decade’s experience of teaching creative writing at the University of Sussex on undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
It has been so liberating to be part of a community of poets – finally, people who don’t see poetry as “dead”, or exasperating, or boring, but instead as something worth being passionate about. I look forward to the sessions every month!
