The Yes(ABLED) Special Is(sue) is live! It can be found here: https://www.avantappalachia.com/special-issues.html
There are 4 countries featured, including 4 states in the U.S. You will find a poem by Volodymyr Bilyk of Ukraine written in a precursor of Braille called Moon Type, some thought-provoking poetry from Ricky Ray in Connecticut, and a fascinating essay regarding mental illness by Brandy Renee McCann from Virginia. We hope that this is(sue) highlights the unique perspective and creativity of the disabled population worldwide.
The submission period for the 9th regular is(sue) is still wide open. The deadline for it is now set at May 31, 2021. Please read the guidelines under “Sub(missions)” in the menu on the website as there have been some changes.
Thank you so much – all of you – for making this ezine every incredible thing that is! We couldn’t do it without each and every one of you.
We would like to take a moment to express condolences for the deaths of regular contributors Philip Kent Church and Linda Regula earlier this year.
Please stay safe during this unusual year. We are sending you calmness and best wishes!
