Brooklyn College Feature of Rosamond S. King

Brooklyn College featured Rosamond S. King, author of Rock | Salt | Stone, on their Poetic License piece on inspiring writers whose work transforms the world!

Here's an excerpt, but be sure to read it in full here:

"Poetry can do anything," said Associate Professor of English Rosamond King. "Poetry can be anything. Poetry can take you inside of someone's flesh and muscle. It can give you a different perspective: an aerial perspective. It can take you underneath, around, or through."

King, an award-winning writer, who melds graphic art, performance, and song into poetic form, is preparing to release her latest poetry collection, Rock | Salt | Stone. The book explores the lives of the marginalized, examining the ways in which one can be an outsider, whether it is through the lens of gender, gender identity, sexuality, geographic origin, or immigration status."
