CRIPtic x Spread the Word are launching a new bi-monthly online Salon for d/Deaf and disabled writers.
The Salon aims to support, develop, promote, and feature underrepresented d/Deaf and disabled writers and be an inclusive space where these writers can be part of a community, learn, have fun and share their work.
Starting in June 2021 and running through to April 2022, each Salon will have a workshop with an invited facilitator followed by a reading and Q&A from a guest writer and an opportunity for participants to take part in an open mic (five x five mins slots will be available at each Salon).
The Salon is open to d/Deaf and disabled writers writing in any genre, new or more experienced and is hosted by Jamie Hale.
The lineup for the whole season includes: Jamie Hale, Antonia Jade King, Jenny Alderton, Hayleigh Barclay, Shannon Yee, Tom Ryalls, DL Williams, Penny Pepper, Ayesha Chouglay, Sonny Nwachukwu, Inigo Purcell and Betty Doyle.
BSL interpretation, relaxed space, image description, any other access needs catered for
