This post is part of our series in honor of ADA Awareness Month. While on a national level the focus is disability employment awareness, CKP is focusing on artists.
Journal of All Things Disability
The idea for a literary-type magazine for the disability community sprung from a magazine discussion group. One night a month, I meet with a gang of women to have coffee and tea and talk about the latest issue of The Sun Magazine. We’re devoted Sun readers who in some way feel enriched by this journal and connect through our discussions of the essays, poetry, and short stories each issue contains.
Kaleidoscope magazine creatively focuses on the experiences of disability through literature and the fine arts. Unique to the field of disability studies, this award-winning publication expresses the experience of disability from the perspective of individuals, families, friends, healthcare professionals, educators and others.
Breath & Shadow
Breath & Shadow is a quarterly journal of disability culture and literature. A project of Ability Maine, Breath & Shadow is the only online literary journal with a focus on disability. It is also unique in being the sole cross-disability literature and culture magazine written and edited entirely by people with disabilities. While some literary journals may devote one issue in a year — or ten years — to the disability experience, in Breath & Shadow you will find poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, drama, and other writing that examines the human experience of living with disability — in every single issue.
Wordgathering continues to seek work that develops the field of disability literature. We invite the submission of poetry, short fiction, drama, art and essays that discuss poetry from a disability perspective or that contribute to the theoretical development of the field of disability literature
