Writers on BIPOC and Disability Inclusion | Accessibility in the Literary Arts

September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Writers and storytellers are the ones who shape our present and forge new paths to the future. Join Deep Vellum for a virtual conversation with a panel of writers to talk about Disability Culture, being BIPOC, intersectionality, and how writers from these communities are working to reshape the literary arts. Event panelists: News editor, national reporter, and fiction writer Wendy Lu; author, speaker, and writing coach Alex Montoya; writer, poet, rapper, and founder of Krip-Hop Nation Leroy Moore, and disability justice advocate and poet Val Vera.

Register here. Make a contribution to support the writers on this panel here.

Over the next months, we’re presenting “Accessibility in the Literary Arts,” an event series that will address vital questions about how to make the literary arts accessible and welcoming to people from all communities.
