Sharon Rockman


is an academic editor, copywriter and private tutor (who also has a strong science background). Recently, she has also embarked upon an internship in vet nursing.

Her poetry is a direct, acerbic and often humourful evocation of human nature and relationships; how we navigate, celebrate, collaborate and love. She aims for a clear voice and a quirky take on the minutiae of day to day living. 

Two of her poems have been shortlisted for the 2021 ACU Prize and one for the Ross Spencer Prize.  A number of her poems are to be published in upcoming editions of Pure Slush.

She is proudly part of a

weekly writing workshop co-run by

Claire Gaskin and Gayelen Carbis,

who have provided

generous and profound

guidance as mentors

and editors.
