I’m Carol Robson and I live in South Yorkshire, England. I went to University as a mature student and after I graduated my life changed for the better.
I have carried out and been involved with Equality and Diversity work to help the LGBT community and I also enjoy working on issues for older people through my involvement with Age UK .
I started writing again in 2009 and I’m passionate on issues of gender, sexuality, ageing and real life, hence ‘Just Saying How It Is’.
It is great to hear that people love my poetry and my life has been enhanced by the many friends I have made through the performance poetry side of my life.
In 2014 I performed my one woman show Finding Me(Take Me s I Am) at Greater Manchester Fringe, Buxton Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe where I received a 4 star review from BoadwayBaby.com
I’ve performed at many venues around the UK and look forward to performing my spoken word/poetry/humour at many more.
My collection Words of Darkness and Light was published by Thynks Publications Ltd as a second edition in Sept 2014. http://www.thynkspublications.co.uk/authors-who-will-sign-sell-and-dispatch-personally-to-their-buyers
