BIO – ROSE JACKSON

Jackson Rose 150x150 1

Rose Jackson was born in 1942 in Johannesburg and has also lived in the Eastern Cape and in Cape Town. She taught English language, literature, and literacy at schools, universities, and a teacher training college in Khayelitsha, written too many prescribed literature study guides, and edited too many theses. She loves mountain walking and sea swimming. Memoir writing is healing and revealing of her love-hate relationship with the Eastern Cape – birthplace of her ancestors and many of our country’s historic figures, of family holidays and poverty, and violence. And a failed marriage. Her writing weaves these together, threaded through with her life-long fascination with amaXhosa culture and beliefs. Contributing author to the Life Righting Collective’s This is how it is anthology.
