AWP Panel:
“Disabled, Different, Diverse? Writing the Liminal Space
Between Identities”

“People with minds/bodies differing from the norm describe their experiences/ identities differently given cultural paradigms through which they see themselves. People often identify with a mixture of labels/concepts: disabled, diverse, or simply different. Authors whose work concerns visible/hidden disabilities, D/deafness, chronic physical/mental illness, and physical/ neurological/ linguistic differences explore the creative potential of stories with characters identifying in complex, unique ways.” 

Featuring D. Bilyak, L.G. Bradford, C. Deptula, L. Escalera, K. Marcath &
T.K. Sellman.
