Top Ten List
Top Ten List June 30, 2011

The publishing world is already buzzing about our new poetry anthology, Beauty is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability! Calling the collection, "unusual and powerful," Publishers Weekly gave the book a spot on its Top Ten list of Poetry Books for fall.

A ground-breaking anthology that brings fresh understanding to the American experience of disability and its poetry, these poems and essays reflect on the body’s fragility, the commodification of the body, and the very nature of beauty and function.

Edited by Jennifer Bartlett, Sheila Black and Michael Northen, Beauty is a Verb is due out this September, but you can get a first look at excerpts, hear from the writers and more when you follow the anthology's facebook page.
