A Journal of Disability Poetry

Volume 5     Issue 1     March 2011

Poetry in this Issue

While each of the poets above rewards reading, and, together, they provide an amazing range of possibilities for disability-related poetry, readers who are considering submitting some of their own work to the 2011 Inglis House Poetry Contest may want to take look at the kinds of topics approached by Bednarska, Jones, Hershey, and Beatty in their work. Diane Kendig's poem "Marie Blanchard, 1914" is read by the author and can be heard in audio format.

The editors of Wordgathering continue to strive to bring quality poetry of interest by new writers with each issue, and, in addition, wish to continue to feature those poets whose work you enjoy. By giving us your thoughts on which writers you feel truly merit greater exposure and why, you help us to carry out one of our major goals, the develpment of the genre of disability poetry. Please send your comments. to comments@wordgathering.com.
