In July of 2016 Molly McCully Brown and Susannah Nevison met for the first time at the Sewanee Writers’ Conference in Tennessee. As working poets with physical disabilities, a condition each explores in her work, they found much in common and quickly became friends, and have grown closer over time. These essays make up a dialogue about being disabled in an able-bodied world that arose from their friendship.
