Maxine Rose Munro

Maxine Rose Munro is a Shetlander adrift on the outskirts of Glasgow. After spending the first eighteen years of her life exclusively on the islands, without even a small break for the holidays, the culture shock experienced on eventually seeing the wider world rocked her to her core and is still rocking some decades later. However, as the end result appears to be poetry, she is fairly ok with this. She has been writing poetry in for a few years now and her work has been widely published, including in Northwords Now; Glasgow Review of Books; Pushing Out the Boat; and The Eildon Tree. More recently she has begun to publish poetry in her native Shetland Scots, something very close to her heart and much, much harder to do than she would ever have believed when she first started out. Forthcoming Shetlandic poems will be found in Poetry Scotland and Three Drops from a Cauldron. Find her here
