Just Out Reading Guide: Gertrude

Gertrude appears in Just Out's "Fall 2009 Reading Guide"
Portland's Premiere Queer News Source Recognizes the "Little Journal that Could"

In Just Out's Fall Reading Guide, published November 19, 2009, reporter Ryan J. Prado highlights Gertrude Press as a "big piece of the niche press puzzle" in what has been a difficult time for many mainstream print publications. Read the full article about how Gertrude connects artists, writers and readers to the greater queer community here.

An excerpt:

"Gertrude Press doesn't have to worry about that very much. The Portland-based gay, lesbian, bi and trans literary and poetry journal, while not on a daily deadline for hard-hitting news and comprehensive election coverage, is a big piece to the niche press puzzle. What's more, it's growing every day."

About Gertrude: Gertrude Press is a non-profit organization showcasing and developing the creative talents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer-identified, and allied individuals. Gertrude, the annual international literary publication of Portland-based Gertrude Press, has been giving a voice to LGBTQ writers since 1999. Fiction and poetry chapbooks are published annually through a judged competition and distributed to subscribers, libraries, universities and bookstores. An annual subscription to Gertrude includes two issues of the journal and a fiction or poetry chapbook.
