Speakers:

Liz Bowen is a Ph.D. candidate in English and comparative literature at Columbia University, where she is working on a dissertation project that traces disability and animality as intertwined sites of literary experimentation in the long twentieth century. She is also a poet with multiple chronic illnesses, and her first poetry collection, Sugarblood (Metatron 2017), explores the relationships between disability, gender, and desire.


Sarit Frishman is a Sick and Disabled, Queer, Trans Femme of Color, a former survival Sex Worker, a community support organizer for Sex Workers, a harm reduction outreach worker and organizer, and a poet / writer with a background in spoken word. Past publications include "Things Missed in Exile", her first chap book published by Nirala Publications, as well as several periodicals including Tits & Sass. She is 48.

Jesse Rice-Evans is a doctoral student in rhetoric and writing studies (English) at the City University of New York Graduate Center. Her work centers activist disability rhetorics on Twitter, embodiment rhetorics, and femme semiotics. She’s the author of three chapbooks and the full-length poetry collection The Uninhabitable, forthcoming from Sibling Rivalry Press in 2019. She teaches writing at The City College of New York and The Cooper Union. She has also volunteered with the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), an international network of sliding-scale acupuncture clinics advocating for accessible, holistic healthcare, since 2011.
