Reviews

Rebel Mountain Press has come up with some winners of late, bringing a voice to those who are not always heard in mainstream literature, including the recently published Disabled Voices Anthology. This collection is part of a burgeoning genre dubbed "Crip Lit." Disabled Voices Anthology is filled with stories and artwork from people with varying disabilities, both visible and invisible, touching on subjects from autism, accessibility, substance use disorders, to living with unrelenting pain, plus many more. The anthology contains a mixture of poetry, fiction, art, and non-fiction created by 28 disabled writers, activists, and artists selected from Canada, the US, and the UK. The foreword is written by Toronto-based Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha.

The foreword is written by Toronto-based Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, a disabled poet, performer and community activist of colour, who stresses the importance of hearing everyone's reality, realities that are not always served up in everyday literature. The strength of Disabled Voices Anthology is its diverse mix of voices stemming from each contributor's own unique life experiences and challenges. Margot Fedoruk, Ormsby Review

"We need these stories and the spaces likeDisabled Voicesto create new narratives that imagine ourselves into Mad, Crip futures."-Qwo-Li Driskill, author

"Finally: community realized through complexity and knowledge created by people who have for so long been effaced." Alok V Menon, trans writer and performance artist
