Rosamond S. King's Rock | Salt | Stone Wins A Lambda!

 

 

 

Congrats to Rosamond S. King whose debut poetry collection Rock | Salt | Stone won the Lambda Award in Lesbian Poetry last night!

Here's an excerpt from a conversation between Jen Bervin, author of Silk Poems (also a Lambda nominee) & Rosamond that went live the day of this year's awards:

"I am a huge fan of Rosamond S. King’s debut Rock | Salt | Stone, (Nightboat Books, 2017), recently nominated (& won) for a 2018 Lambda Literary Poetry Award. A creative and critical writer, performer, and artist, King has performed her politically engaged work in a dozen countries, holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature with a minor in Performance Studies from New York University and is an Associate Professor in the English Department at Brooklyn College. Her scholarly book, Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination won the 2015 Lewis Award for Best Caribbean Studies Book from The Caribbean Studies Association."—Jen Bervin, Lambda Literary
