Jewelle Gomez is one of few writers who so beautifully encapsulate what a storyteller is and has the power to be in our modern world. In addition to her fiction, essays, and poems, she's served on literary panels such as those for the National Endowment for the Arts and the California Arts Council, was a member of the original staff of "Say Brother," one of the first weekly, black television shows in the United States (WGBH-TV Boston), and was on the founding board of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). She is currently on the national advisory boards of the National Center for Lesbian Rights; Poets & Writers, Inc.; and the Human Sexuality Archives of Cornell University. We are proud to debut four new poems.
