Featured Review: Eloise Klein Healy

Gertrude is pleased to feature a review of poet Eloise Klein Healy's A Wild Surmise: New and Selected Poems and Recordings in our current issue.

Healy's work is reviewed by Gertude's new poetry editor, Allison Tobey. A Wild Surmise includes nearly four decades of old favorites, new poetry, and also makes use of QR code technology to offer accompanying audio recordings. It is a rich work, receiving Tobey's unabashed stamp of approval: "if you want to be inspired, whether as a writer or just as a person—read this book." Read the review from Issue 20 now »

Featured Interview: Arisa White

Gertrude is pleased to feature an interview with poet Arisa White in issue 19.

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 »
