Rosie Fletcher is a part-time invalid, part-time columnist and full-time hero.
Hello hello! I’m Rosie. I’m a knitter, baker, reader, podcaster, lapsed stand-up comedian, children’s literature student, and Netflix devotee. I also have a long-term, disabling disease called M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Around my napping, hospital appointments and pyjama curation, I am an accidental journalist and commentator.
I write on the subject of disability and welfare, feminism and pop culture, socialism and the Labour Party. You can find my writing in the New Statesman, the Observer and the Huffington Post. I also turn up on television and radio: you can see and hear me on Sky News, BBC Two, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 5Live. Want to commission me? Please do!
