Interview with Derrick Harriell

We had the pleasure of interviewing Derrick Harriell, 2022-2023 judge for our Kay Murphy Prize for Poetry contest.

We discuss his latest book, Come Kingdom, his musical and religious influences, and address the difficulties that come with “infertility, fatherhood, race, masculinity, and religion.”

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the full interview here.
