Olivia Spring & Kyla Jamieson discuss accessibility in the literary arts.

In this webinar, Olivia Spring (publisher of SICK magazine) and Kyla Jamieson (organizer of the Rest Days reading series) will discuss accessibility in the literary arts and offer examples of alternatives to standard publishing and reading formats. Olivia and Kyla will focus on sharing personal experiences and practical methods for nurturing a culture of accessibility through collaboration and communication. Following their presentation, there will be time for a Q&A. All levels of knowledge regarding access and disability are welcome as we flow towards more inclusive futures together.

This hour-long webinar will include captioning, a 5 to 10-minute intermission, and documents of reading texts and presentation notes are available.
