In this workshop, we'll interrogate the ways illness has been used as a trope or misrepresented in literature (think Jane Eyre) to the ways we have and are moving toward a less ableist representation of disability (think "His Last Game" by Brian Doyle). We'll explore the ways disabled lives are being featured and honored in literature today, including works by major authors like Alice Wong, Maysoon Zayid, and Temple Grandin, as well as emerging writers.
