Poetry flows where my Rosemary goes

PATHHEAD scribe Rosemary McDougall’s latest works of poetry have earned her second prize in a prestigious writing competition.

The part-time bard, who pocketed £100 after entering a collection of poems – titled ‘Tears and Laughter’ –into the David St John Thomas Charitable Trust writing competition, was invited to a ceremony in London on May 11 to receive her prize.

A retired fundraiser, Rosemary has written hundreds of poems since falling in love with the art of writing as a child, when her father, a book binder by trade, would often bring works of fiction back to the family home.
