Description

Smart, sassy, sensual and soulful―Five women share the poetry and process of fat embodiment.

In a sociocultural climate in which fat bodies are considered diseased and blamed for everything from rising medical costs to global warning, it takes courage for fat women, especially, to express anything but shame about their bodies. Fat Poets Speak is part of and intended for the growing movement reclaiming "fat" as a valid way to exist in the world.

The Fat Poets' Society was born during a poetry workshop at the 2006 annual convention of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance, a civil rights organization. The poets are donating their royalties to NAAFA.
