How exciting to finally be able to share with you! 😃 [big smiley]
I’ve been holding on to this until we got a little more info about the book’s production, and with the recent reveal of its cover, I now am happy to announce that I’ve been accepted for publishing in “Disabled Voices,” an anthology edited by sb. smith and to be published by Rebel Mountain Press.
Three of my pieces were accepted for this anthology, including two pieces that are currently for sale in the shop! Those are Cozy Witch, which is also my first award-winning piece, and From Bed, and both are available as the original artwork and as prints.
sb. smith is a disabled writer and artist, whose writing profile you can find on Disabled Writers, a database for finding disabled writers, alongside other distinguished disability advocates and writers such as Vilissa Thompson and Alice Wong. They paired up with Rebel Mountain Press to bring together this anthology of disabled writings and art by disabled people ourselves, and I’m honored to be included in its pages and grateful to sb. for their hard work and dedication to this project. 💕 [hearts]
I’m very much looking forward to its release, which is tentatively scheduled for winter of 2020! I hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of this awesome anthology when it’s released and/or one of their other books that follow a similar vein of “Own Voices” style, including In Our Own Aboriginal Voice and Breaking Boundaries.
I’m so excited that my art will be shared in a compilation about disabled creators by disabled creators. I can only imagine how many people it will reach, but I feel greatly honored and grateful to be included. I hope that my work will be a source of positive representation of disabled, fat, and queer people for people who are marginalized in these ways themselves. 😭💕 [crying face with two hearts]
Anywho, that’s all for today! Hope you’re having a wonderful day, and thanks so much for reading! 💕 [hearts]
