Kenny’s first monthly column, “The Stories We Tell About Disability,” is up at How We Get To Next.
“If my time in Japan taught me anything, it is that in the ancient culture of Japan, unlike in the West, the idea of the actual, the original, does not seem to matter as much, or matter at all.”
The New York Times publishes Kenny as one of ten poets in “Poetry is a Way of Being in the World that Wasn’t Made For Us.”
