Meet the Poet
Rowan Taw is British born, New Zealand residing, and a Bachelor of English Literature dropout. She restored her academic record, now holding a PhD in Psychology, publishing her research in psychological journals on a regular basis. Rowan’s poetry draws on this background, as well as her Buddhist practice, and love of literature (despite the dropout) to inform and influence her writing, through which she aims to bear witness to life: the miniscule and the mighty, the profound and the profane, sometimes with earnestness, sometimes with humor, and everything in between. She can often be found responding to prompts over at dversepoets.com, and she has a website at rowantaw.com where her poetry resides. Read.
