New Year – New Writers

18 Jan

Vision Through Words started posting poetry and essays written by visually impaired authors back in 2011.  We’ve posted stories and poems that have made us laugh and made us cry, some about our blind experiences and some just to touch the heart, sighted or not.  If you haven’t followed us from the beginning, take a journey into the archives and discover the talent within.  If you’ve been following the blog, maybe it’s time you try your hand at writing and submitting in 2013.  Getting in tune with your creative self is theraputic, rewarding and fun.  All you have to do is send something you think is good enough to share with the world to visionthroughwords@gmail.com .  If it fits our guidelines (click on the Submission tab for more info), you’ll get posted!



Need Your Input!

Hello all.  As you know, this blog posts poetry and essays written by visually impaired authors.  And those authors are you or someone you know!  We are putting out a call for submissions.  Tell us what’s on your mind or share an experience that you think is unique to blind folks.  Be poetic or tell us a story.  We need your input and want to hear what you have to say.  Click or press enter on the Submissions tab to find out where to send your writings.

Thank you!

Visions In The Dark

19 Feb

by Stella De Genova

I am involved in an art show this May that is called Visions In The Dark.  It will highlight the artwork of myself and 2 other visually impaired artists, Angie Geis and David Simpson.  It’s an exciting project that we hope will bring an understanding to the community that even if an individual has physical limitations, there is no limit to creativity.  Not only will there be artwork, there will also be music recorded by blind artists and some of the essays and poetry from this blog.  What I will be doing is re-posting some of our most popular pieces which I will be displaying at the art show.   Enjoy – again!

Submissions, submissions, submissions!
