Digital journal for writers with disabilities
A new literary magazine called Deaf Poets Society has been launched in the United States for people with disabilities.
Its founder, poet Sarah Katz, says the magazine is a space for writers with disabilities who want to make their voices and thoughts heard.
Members of the disability community have struggled to find a space in the literary world and are unhappy with how they are represented in the literary community.
Writers and artists with any kind of disability can contribute to the magazine, which will release new issues two times a month.
Most pieces are presented in both text and audio, and pictures are accompanied by descriptions for people who cannot see the images. There are plans to start online workshops that could allow people to attend from home.
