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.

I am an artist, designer, writer and editor based in Glasgow, Scotland. I am the owner of Normal Land, where I sell pins, patches, (occasionally) stickers, and original art.

I am a contributing editor of Doll Hospital, an arts and literature journal that focusses on mental health.

I am also a doctoral researcher at the London College of Fashion, where I was the recipient of the University of the Arts London three-year research studentship. My research examines the relationship between disability, clothing, fashion and identity for women with mobility impairments.

I have contributed to pieces in The Guardian, Dazed, The Hairpin, The Style Con, and Cause and Effect Magazine
