I'm preparing for a disability writing workshop I'll be leading at the Loft
Literary Center, and I'm looking for more readings. Do you have any
recommendations? Which writers have inspired or influenced you, which works
gave you "permission" to write what you write? Were there some essays on
writing and identity, by disabled or non-disabled writers, that helped you?
The workshop will cover both prose and poetry, and also look into bias in
publishing, selling or not selling the disability card when pursuing grants
and fellowships, and the challenges of reading in public.
