Overview

The Fat Poets' Society writes about their joys, sorrows, anger, sadness, and pleasure at living in a world that constantly tries to reject and inhibit fat people. Volume 3 of the Fat Poets Speak series comprises poems in which the poets alternately dance and fly, moving their feet and their bodies and then growing wings as they encompass the earth, above the earth, and finally, the sky, breaking the bodily barrier. To all who choose to read this volume, they say, "Come dance and fly with us."

The Fat Poets' Society began at a writing workshop at the 2006 convention of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA). The first volume in the series, Fat Poets Speak: Voices of the Fat Poets' Society was published by Pearlsong Press in May 2009 and praised as groundbreaking.
