new literary journal

The Deaf Poets Society

The Poetry Department doesn’t often cover the emergence of new literary publications; that would be a project in itself. But this one seems to offer a focus that is both unique and widely relevant, so we present it here in the hope that its audience of contributors and readers will grow.

The Deaf Poets Society, founded by writer Sarah Katz, calls itself “an online journal of disability literature & art.” Issue 1 was published this month, with a selection of poetry, prose, art, and “ideas.”

Published six times a year, the journal accepts “submissions of poetry, prose, cross-genre work, reviews/interviews/miscellany, and art” and is “looking for narratives about the experience of disability that complicate or altogether undo the dominant and typically marginalizing rhetoric about disability.”

There’s more of The Deaf Poets Society on Facebook and you can also learn more in this article from the PBS News Hour.
