Guest Speaker-Angel Rosen

Angel Rosen is a poet living in Armstrong County. She writes about neurodivergence, grief, taking up space, being queer, and the joy in unconventional things. She spends most of her time watching television series with her dogs, reading, and writing. She edited a poetry collection called Poems for the Ride and she has work forthcoming with Gutslut Press, Olney Magazine, and BC3's Facets. She's soon releasing her second book, Blake which goes alongside her first book, Aurelia. More information about her life and poetry can be found at 

Aurelia-book of poems

The poems found in Angel Rosen's first collection of poems, Aurelia, contemplate the purpose of life, death and everything in-between. These poems come from a place of grief, of curiosity, and the desire to be understood. For every girl who has felt out of place in this world, for every girl who invented her own place to be.
