2023 Zoeglossia Fellows: Call for Disabled Poets

If you are a poet (age 21+) who identifies as disabled and is interested in building community and pursuing artistic excellence in a diverse cohort of writers, consider applying to be a Zoeglossia Fellow.

Submissions are open from December 15th to February 15th 2023.

Zoeglossia was formed to support and highlight the work of poets with disabilities. Our mission is to create an open, transparent, and supportive community that celebrates disability poetics and welcomes and fosters disability creativity. We advocate for literary arts communities to center disability justice and disability intersectionality (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, and disability). Valuing our interconnectedness is essential to authentic social transformation and collective liberation.
