Arc 102  Disability Desirability: the Fall 2023 issue

In issue 102, guest editor Therese Estacion asks: “What do we make of a disabled body or, to use disability justice group Sins Invalid’s term, bodymind that desires? A body that knows all too well how it feels to be told that it has no business wanting for love, wanting for more.”

The poems and essays in this issue approach this question from all angles and “fill the space with their desirous voice.”
