THE POET ROSEGOLD  hails from “the real Gotham City” – a Bronx, New York native who discovered Poetry at 15. Coupled with her 20-year career as an Army photojournalist, her workhighlights the injustices tarnishing the American landscape; spirituality; intimacy; self-love/Black love; mental health; and (past) life in the military. Poet RoseGold has appeared on the “red-dot stage” at TEDx Colorado Springs, 2019, and  featured in several anthologies. Her debut  book, Poetry Is A Love Language (But First, Lemme Tell You Something … ) is slated for release soon.
