The Deaf Poet Society is a new online literary magazine featuring writers and artists with disabilities. They are currently seeking submissions of poetry, prose, cross-genre work, book reviews, and artwork for publication. They publish an online issue four times a year: January, April, July, and October. You can read or listen to audio about each of their staff members and editors on their About page.
It’s more important than ever to support marginalized voices. I recently funded payments to for all contributors for their special Crips in Space issue. Every dollar helps keep literary projects such as this one available to all of us.
They are “looking for narratives about the experience of disability that complicate or altogether undo the dominant and typically marginalizing rhetoric about disability. We especially want to highlight work that investigates the complexity of the experience across identities. Whether you’re drawing from experiences related to gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, race, or any other marginalized identity, we want your voice in our journal.”
