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’m an inspirational & motivational writer, speaker and podcaster. I draw from my life experiences (including growing up legally blind, living with ADHD and surviving an ischemic stroke to my spinal cord in 2002) and the lives of others to inspire and motivate people to overcome obstacles and/or adversities, while encouraging people to achieve every goal they have set for yourselves!
