We recently sat down with Rosemarie Wilson, poetry writer and spoken word performer, to show off her BOLD. Rosemarie, a Detroit Michigan native, has been writing since she was in 2nd grade, when she won her very first poetry contest. She released her first collection, One Single Rose . . . Poetry Blossomed from a Rose Core, in March of 2009. Rose’s biggest challenge, since then, has been her reluctance to step on stage and perform her art in spoken word, a feat she says she has just recently overcome.
Then, it all seemed to click. “things really took off…Two months later I won two National Poetry Awards, New & Upcoming Poet of the Year and Poetry Author of the Year, my poems won 1st place in poetry contests and more people began to ask me to pen poems.” Rose will be performing in a play, “Life in 4-Part Harmony” (www.allforoneink.com) for the first time, this August and she recently finished filming for a scene in a Detroit based comedy (which hits theaters, this Fall). She’s currently nominated as Poetry Author of the Year for a second year in a row–winners will be announced on August 20, 2011 in Dallas, Texas.
This is Rosemarie Wilson, and this is her BOLD!
