MFAW-VT Alumna Lizz Schumer in Ploughshares!

MFAW-VT alumna Lizz Schumer’s essay, “Communion in Disability Poetics” appears in the latest issue of Ploughshares.
Here’s a glimpse:
“Many disabled poets also ascribe to the social model of disability, which emphasizes that disability is not an inherent “defect,” but is instead a reckoning with a set of barriers—both physical and behavioral—that have been erected and perpetuated by society. Being rendered disabled by the laws and structure of the world in which we live can feel isolating for its targets. It’s also damaging for society at large.”
