Description

“I was delighted by Stairs and Whispers’ radicalism and innovation. The editors have ensured that
the book is accessible, including poetry film links with British Sign Language and subtitling. (…)
I challenge anyone to find a poetry anthology that represents diversity and intersectionality
as well. It’s not hyperbole to repeat this anthology is groundbreaking, on several levels."

-Katrina Naomi, Magma Poetry (London), Winter 2017

Sandra Alland, Khairani Barokka and Daniel Sluman co-edit Stairs and Whispers: D/deaf and Disabled Poets Write Back, a ground-breaking anthology examining the poetics of disabled and D/deaf cultures. With contributions that span Vispo to Surrealism, and range from hard-hitting political commentary to intimate lyrical pieces – these poets refuse to perform or inspire according to tired old narratives. The first of its kind and packed with fierce poetry, essays, photos and links to accessible online videos, Stairs and Whispers showcases a diversity of styles, opinions, and survival strategies for a world that often works to shut us down.
