Compared with their American and British counterparts, Canadian writers with disabilities have had relatively little opportunity to see their work featured in publications focusing on the work of writers from their own country. Canadian poet Shane Neilson (the author of Dysphoria) is trying to help remedy this by leading a special of Hamilton Letters and Arts Magazine that forefronts the literary work of disabled Canadian writers. The issue will appear in Fall of 2019 but the deadline for submitting work for the issue is April 29. The link to submission guidelines and more detailed information is: https://halmagazine.wordpress.com/submit/submit-to-hal-magazine/
It is a great opportunity for Canadian writers to get their work before the public. If all goes well with this issue, it will provide on step towards being able to see the Canadian equivalent to anthologies like Beauty is a Verb or Stair and Whispers.
