Laura Ding-Edwards has signed a publishing deal with That Guy's House for her debut book of poetry The Mountain
Laura Ding-Edwards is an artist and poet from Herefordshire, UK. Having created her first poem, The Mountain, about her own struggles with anxiety her writing now has a global following on her Facebook page, Rainbird Roots.
Laura’s first book, aptly titled The Mountain, is a collection of evocative poetry & prose relating to mental health, positive body image, self awareness & personal growth. Laura’s poetry has been described as “like having a friend quietly sit beside you and whisper everything will be ok”. Along with her art business and poetry, Laura is currently heading up #TheMountainMovement, a project that involves postcard size copies of The Mountain poem being left in public places across the world for people to find & pass on, as a way of paying kindness forward.
Laura is also the founder of RainbirdRoots.com; a poetry and lifestyle blog and online store.
That Guy's House is thrilled to be working with Laura. We have a deep love for poetry, especially that which beautifully describes the human experience. We believe that Laura's book can stand alongside modern poetry masterpieces like Milk & Honey and There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé.
