Disabled Writers is a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, and journalists connect with disabled sources. Our goal is specifically to promote paid opportunities for multiply marginalized members of the disability community, and to encourage editors and journalists to think of disabled people for stories that stretch beyond disability issues.

Alexander Lieberman is an autistic writer, researcher, and historian based out of the Northern Chicago suburbs. His interest in science fiction and fantasy led him to fall in love with writing and attempting to understand the thoughts of others from an outsider's perspective (leading to a bachelors in Creative Writing from Knox College), as well as how people have related to each other over time (leading to a Masters in Public History from Loyola University of Chicago). He currently works with museums and historical societies in the area.

He is the inventor of neurohistorical analysis, a method of analyzing historical figures and their motivations in the context of neurodiversity to offer insight into how the conditions now identified as mental illnesses have manifested and affected others over time. He is also a writer, researcher, trained historian, and interviewer, having conducted an oral history for the Sigma Nu Fraternity and published an article on local history in the Northbrook Tower.
