Readers and writers have grown more accustomed to thinking about the different voices in literature: black, Latino, LGBTQ, and many, many more.

Kristen Harmon, a writer and professor of English at Gallaudet University, has written an essay that seeks to bring awareness of this particular segment of creative writing.

Harmon explains the topic further in a post on Bloomsbury’s blog.
