Gertrude is pleased to feature an interview with poet Arisa White in our current issue.
Arisa White's first full-length collection, Hurrah’s Nest, nominated for the 44th NAACP Image Award, made some of Gertrude’s editorial staff fall in love and want to know more. Her second full-length collection, A Penny Saved, was published by Willow Books. Gertrude’s Elizabeth Simson had the honor of interviewing Arisa for issue 19 of Gertrude. Read the interview now »
