2013 New Jersey Poetry Prize!
Edwin Romond's poem, "Champion," has been selected by the editorial board of The Journal of New Jersey Poets to receive the 2013 New Jersey Poetry Prize. The award includes a medallion, a check for $1,000, and featured publication in this year's issue of The Journal of New Jersey Poets.
"Alone with Love Songs teaches us what it means to be human in poems that are by turns wistful and ironic, vulnerable and hopeful. It is a splendid volume, one that readers will want to return to time after time. Romond is a poet's poet."
