We need to begin talking about this upcoming event. We need to begin getting more books. There were many left from our 2016 debut in Los Angeles but as you may well already know the doors here are always open.
For those who need more info: DLC solicits books from authors aligned with Disability Literature movement. Crip Lit. The Crip Lit cannon. All are welcome here.
We ask that you send us books which we in turn sell at book fairs such as AWP. We give you the option of either donating sales proceeds to the DLC or having us cut you a check for books sold. And lastly we ask that you let us know what to do with books that do not sell. Hold on to them for the next event? Donate them? Return them to you? Email for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No we do not get paid for this.
Monies that the DLC generates – either from book sales or Kickstarter campaigns – goes the purchasing the next AWP Booth. Or shipping a lot of books from one part of the country to another. Purchasing a Square CC reader for these events because the first one got lost…somehow.
One other thing and this has nothing to do with AWP but everything to do with making this Disability Literature Consortium site bigger/better/badder: we would like the Resources page to be really well rounded. Send us info about blog sites, CripLit author sites, presses, etc., that should be referenced here.
