Jennifer L. Knox in the Washington Post

Screenshot of top portion of Washington Post article by Jennifer L. Knox. Headline reads "I really wanted that student to feel censored: A poetry class confronts slurs, and finds grace." There is a small author photo in the lower right.

A glorious surprise! We didn't know this was coming, but it's a great piece in the Washington Post for National Poetry Month/NaPoWriMo, in which Jen discusses what happened in her classroom when a student (for the first time in her experience) included an ableist slur in a poem he brought to workshop.

Find all four of Jennifer's books—Days for Shame & Failure, The Mystery of the Hidden Driveway, Drunk by Noon, and A Gringo Like Mein our store here.
