An Eye For An Eye For An Eye explores what it means to grow up a girl, and how this experience intersects with disability and visual impairment. These poems concern themselves with looking: looking back over a childhood, looking again at what’s in front of us, and looking forward to possible futures. They visit girlhood and myth, blindness and friendship. They celebrate the freedom, shame, and awkwardness of coming to terms with our own bodies, and they ask what it means to look different and see differently.
In March 2021, a group of 29 creative practitioners from across Scotland came together in virtual spaces to think, talk, listen and dream, learning from each other and through the act of dialogue.

Here you will find more questions than answers, and we hope these will nudge you into new thoughts, collective actions, responsibilities and futures.
