Disability Poetry Workshop

How to 'Crip' Poetry Workshop



Jacob Scheier - disabilitypoetry@gmail.com

The workshop is facilitated by Governor General's Award winning poet Jacob Scheier
Wednesday evenings Oct 11-Nov 15

In this six-week online workshop-course, participants will learn techniques and devices for writing poetry about disability with a disability (social-political) consciousness, also known as “Crip Poetry:” a radical subgenre of poetry focused on self-defining disability against the norms of a society made by and for able-bodied/minded people.

This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as having a disability: this is not limited to physical disability, but includes psychological disability: such as (but not limited to), those who identify as neurodiverse and/or psychiatric survivors.

Writers of all levels of experience are welcome

Cost is $250--with a sliding scale for those in financial need.
