Rosamond S. King & Jen Bervin: On Poetry, Art, & Our Dystopian Reality

Rosamond S. King & Jen Bervin: On Poetry, Art, & Our Dystopian Reality

In anticipation of the Lambda Awards Ceremony, Jen Bervin, author of Silk Poems converses with Rosamond S King author of Rock | Salt | Stone up on the Lambda Literary blog.

Here's an RSK excerpt from the conversation: "In poetry, performance, and visual art, I am always trying to illuminate the lives and experiences of people “other” than white people and men, the traditional subjects of mainstream poetry and art. Much of my poetry collection relates to people who might be stoned in their communities, and much of it relates to how people “salt” their own life with the pleasurable flavors of desire and humor."
