Poetry Foundation & Poetry Magazine says
In 2014, Poetry magazine published an exchange among four contemporary poets on the subject of poetry and disability. The exchange addresses writing about disability, ableism in the literary world, experiences with publishing and accessibility, and questions concerning disability, form, and embodiment. This panel discussion will continue the conversation begun in the exchange and will welcome participation of the audience through a Q&A.

Panel Moderator Don Share is the editor of POETRY magazine.

John Lee Clark is the editor of the anthologies Deaf American Poetry and Deaf Lit Extravaganza. His latest title is Where I Stand: On the Signing Community and My DeafBlind Experience. His poems and essays have appeared in many publications.
