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 a freelance journalist based in the U.K and writing for publications on both sides of the Atlantic. I often cover health, publishing, and pop culture (especially U.S television), including how each of those topics intersects with technology. My bylines include The Guardian, The Washington Post, Mental Health Today, The Toast (RIP), and The Rumpus.
