Rosamund Stanford ~ Day 42 of 21 Days 21 Poets

Watch Rosamund on YouTube

Rosamund lives on a farm outside Makhanda, Eastern Cape. Her two poetry books are The Peeling of Skies (Aerial, 2004) and The Hurricurrent (Deep South, 2011).

“Living in comparative isolation helps me free the tide of feelings that’s swept me to my present place. My editing skills desert me when I look at my unruly lines, as if my poems are afraid of my often stony eye.
