I am a writer, performer and multiple slam winning spoken word poet who hails from the Canadian prairies.

I have written and toured two solo shows – The Geography of Me & How To Starve An Artist (Runner Up Best UK Spoken Word Show – Saboteur Awards 2017). My slam wins include Manchester’s Word War Slam Championship, SLAMalgamate in Newcastle, the Axis Slam in Crewe and the Say Owt Slam in Edinburgh. I have competed at the Hammer & Tongue National Slam at London’s Royal Albert Hall (2016 & 2017).

Longlisted for the inaugural Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowship, I have featured at festivals and events across the UK, including Lindisfarne Festival, the Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe, the Huddersfield Literature Festival, performances for Amnesty International, and supporting Shane Koyczan (presented by Apples & Snakes and Say Owt – York) and Hollie McNish (presented by Evidently – Salford).

I programme and host Queenie’s Coffee House Nights at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, and run creative writing workshops for young people and adults. www.rosecondo.net
