Michael Rosen

As a child

I grew up in the London suburb of Pinner, a place my parents often wondered about. How had we landed there? My parents were teachers, politically committed (socialists), and great storytellers and readers. I was lucky to have found them.

As an adult

Most of my adult life, I’ve been a freelance writer, teacher (of sorts), journalist, performer and broadcaster. I visit schools doing my one-man show, and support Arsenal Football Club.

As an artist

I have often written about my life and family, but I also write occasional fantasy (usually based in a real place) and non-fiction. Would you like to learn more about Michael Rosen?
