Beyond Resilience! Lambda Literary & Nat.Brut at AWP

Join us for a dynamic reading sponsored by Lambda Literary + Nat. Brut, hosted by Kay Ulanday Barrett during AWP 2019.

Come and enjoy a dynamic night that centers the work for/by Sick, Disabled, Chronic Pain, & Mad Queer writers! We recognize that writing on disability and ability are not mutually exclusive of other trappings of oppression and experience. Here, we want to honor and celebrate writing where Disabled and Sick people take the charge, spoon out, seek solace, amplify craft & care! This reading uplifts Black, Indigenous, & People of Color Queer perspectives so please honor & celebrate this nuance and brilliance.
