Born in the 1960s in a mother-and-baby home, Rosie Morris soon became a cherished adopted child, a new belonging rooting deep into her first fracture.
Rosie’s work—heavily influenced by her own adoption story and by the tangle of her lived experiences—explores (un)belonging, fear, bravery, love, loss and (re)connection.
Her prize-winning short fiction has been published online & in print. She has also begun to explore creative nonfiction. And is currently dragging herself through the final edit of her first novel, There Will Be Tempest, which has been simmering in the stew pot for far too long.
Rosie is a Munster Literature Centre Mentorship Fellow and, with three fellow mentees, founded and edits The Four Faced Liar, a new Cork-based literary journal. An older emerging writer who stymied her own creative yearnings for decades, Rosie’s aim is to champion all those who long to call themselves writers but are afraid it isn't their place to do so.
