About

 

Rowan Headshot

Rowan James is a poet who delivers complex rhymes with directness and swagger.

A poet who loves the rhythms and textures of words, he speaks more clearly in metaphor than he manages in a text.

Being a poet came out of wanting to be heard, struggling to be understood he chose to skip the torturous journey from pen to paper and compose poems in his head.

He makes work that holds you tenderly by the collar while it slaps you in the face, complete compositions with a unique voice and style: subversive, quick-witted full of road hardened wordplay and the flare of showmanship.
