I’m Anne Grange. I’m a writer based in Sheffield.
Wild Rosemary is my writing business. I’m specialising in helping people to write memoirs and biographies.
I thought carefully about my business name. As a herb, Rosemary is said to improve the memory. It symbolises remembrance and in Hamlet, Ophelia says “there’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance”. I thought it was very apt, with a literary ring to it! My middle name is Rosemary too. It’s time my name came in useful.
The “Wild” part is because I’m now freelance. And who doesn’t like a bit of wildness, whether it’s re-living crazy, carefree days, a day spent in the countryside? Today has been quite wild: a spring day today with the leaves and flowers finally coming to life in the bright sunshine; ungainly bumble bees bumping into people. Then the wind would gust and the sky would turn dark grey. But the sun won the fight in the end.

The courses will help you to tell your story, no matter what stage you’re at or how confident you are with writing. Click on the News and Events page for more details.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Lots of love,
