Written and illustrated by the Disabled community about the Disabled community in North America, Disabled Voices is an international anthology collection of short stories (both fiction and non-fiction), personal essay, poetry, and artwork. Featuring both new as well as established authors, Disabled Voices is comprised of submissions written by Canadian, American, and UK authors.
?A first of its kind, Disabled Voices captures life as a Disabled person: from the bad and ugly, to the good and victorious, and anything in between. Likewise, some pieces may not fit the mainstream idea of what the Disabled community is. This is a must have book for members of the Disabled community, but it is also very necessary to bring awareness and understanding to readers of all kinds.

sb. smith is a queer Disabled writer, editor, artist, and cat lover living in Vancouver, B.C. She is a student of Vancouver Island University's Creative Writing program, and her own writing has been published in Portal literary magazine, Sad Girl Review, and the Navigator Press newspaper. She is tirelessly dedicated to disability justice initiatives by helping amplify Disabled voices through both her professional and community-based work.

Leah is a Toronto and Seattle-based poet, writer, educator and social activist. Her writing and performance art focuses on documenting the stories of queer and trans people of colour, abuse survivors, and mixed-race people. A central concern of her work is the interconnection of systems of colonialism, abuse and violence. Her second book of poetry, Love Cake, won the Lambda Literary Award for lesbian poetry in 2012. In 2018, her latest book Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice was published by Arsenal Pulp Press.

Rebel Mountain Press has come up with some winners of late, bringing a voice to those who are not always heard in mainstream literature, including the recently published Disabled Voices Anthology. This collection is part of a burgeoning genre dubbed "Crip Lit." Disabled Voices Anthology is filled with stories and artwork from people with varying disabilities, both visible and invisible, touching on subjects from autism, accessibility, substance use disorders, to living with unrelenting pain, plus many more. The anthology contains a mixture of poetry, fiction, art, and non-fiction created by 28 disabled writers, activists, and artists selected from Canada, the US, and the UK. The foreword is written by Toronto-based Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha.

The foreword is written by Toronto-based Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, a disabled poet, performer and community activist of colour, who stresses the importance of hearing everyone's reality, realities that are not always served up in everyday literature. The strength of Disabled Voices Anthology is its diverse mix of voices stemming from each contributor's own unique life experiences and challenges. Margot Fedoruk, Ormsby Review

"We need these stories and the spaces likeDisabled Voicesto create new narratives that imagine ourselves into Mad, Crip futures."-Qwo-Li Driskill, author

"Finally: community realized through complexity and knowledge created by people who have for so long been effaced." Alok V Menon, trans writer and performance artist
