I’m really happy to share the details of my recent poetry reading at an event organized by the Jersey City Writers and Art House Access festival. The “Overcoming Limitation” event was for a night of selected readings that recognize the experiences and voices of people living with disabilities. My two poems got selected by the judging panel along 10 other writers.
People with disabilities constitute a large and diverse group that remains underrepresented both in literature and in life. A disability may be physical or psychological, visible or invisible, but always comes with challenges, as well as unique opportunities for triumph. In other words, it always comes with a story.
