Write Up! Live Reading

Write-Up-e1493542073197 (1)“Invisible and chronic illness and disability differs greatly from acute illness. It slides along as the undercurrent, emerging in surprising places.“

Kerri Shying – Peer Convener, Write-Up!

Write-Up! is a group of writers who identify as living with disability of some kind – we formed a peer-support group and have been working together since late 2016.  We are proud to have completed stories and commentaries with a critical perspective.

Write-Up! presents the work of Morgan Bennett, Venessa Miler, Lynn Reeves, Sherynne Smith and Andrew Spannenberg.
