Danez Smith is the Cover Story and Feature of POZ Magazine's June 2019 Issue!



In an interview with Daryl Hannah, Danez Smith talks about their experience at the intersection of queerness, Blackness, poetry, and being HIV positive. They discuss their second book Don't Call Us Dead (Graywolf Press) and how writing shaped the way they both processed and moved forward after their diagnosis. It is so important to see queer, Black stories being shared. Congratulations on your cover story, Danez, and thank you for being you!

Elizabeth Acevedo is Interviewed by ALL ARTS on Writing for Young Black Latinas, Teen Pregnancy, and Her Latest Novel!


Elizabeth Acevedo uses her new novel, With the Fire on High, to change the narrative about teen pregnancy—demanding attention for young Black and Brown mothers.


From the Interview:

And who are you writing for?

Listen, I don’t sugarcoat this answer ever. I write for, I write towards and I write about black and brown young women of color. That when I am thinking of who needs a reminder that they are the hero of their own life story, those are the girls.
