I’m 25 and hearing impaired (and that’s usually a pretty good thing).
M. E. Perkins is a creative nonfiction reader for Gingerbread House, an online literary journal. She currently teaches at Stephen F.

Her poetry and nonfiction has previously appeared in The Piney Dark Horror collections (2015, 2016), Hothouse literary journal, and elsewhere. She was born with Usher’s Syndrome—a genetic condition affecting hearing and eyesight—and, as such, has long been fascinated with studying disability in both her creative and critical work.
