Stories are the currents that connect us and move us through life. For more than 20 years, the love of storytelling has taken me on an incredible journey as a professional writer, author, and media maker. Whether it's publishing poetry, fiction, essays, journalistic writing, or screenwriting, exhibiting visual art, or writing speeches and marketing copy, I love how the power to craft stories has enriched my experience and given me to tools to help people transform their lives.

What people are saying about Gathering the Waters:

Keisha-Gaye Anderson is comfortable in the language and truth of her poems. Hers is a necessary voice for our times. These poems sing, dance, rumble and cry out like sweet thunder from the coral colored shore of her poetic terrain. I am in awe of these spirit vocals, these healing water sounds.
  —Cheryl Boyce-Taylor, poet and author of Arrival and Convincing The Body

Gathering the Waters is a potent book of poetry that can intoxicate your senses. Keisha wields her pen like a Samurai swordsman. Her poetry deals with the personal us, the intimate us, and the history of us. Keisha’s poetry takes you on a wonderfully exciting journey through the culture and beauty of being Black, with the promise of tomorrow.
  —Abiodun Oyewole, The Last Poets
