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.

My name is Elizabeth Campbell, and I have been totally blind since birth. I am a reporter at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, a position I've held for over 34 years. I've had various reporting assignments at the newspaper including covering education, county government and civil courts. My current responsibilities include covering economic development and issues relating to rapid growth in north Texas. I am a long-time member of the National Federation of the Blind, and held local and state offices. I helped found a group, Blind Professional Journalists. I am also president of the Texas Association of Guide Dog Users, and I serve on the boards of Computers for the Blind and Access Ready Inc.
