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.

Image: A picture of Errol leaning on a wall, cut off just below his chest. His head is turned slightly towards the right to face the camera. His hair is black and asymmetrical, with a cowlick pushing his hair to the left side of his face. He is clean-shaven smiling slightly with a raised right eyebrow and is wearing a pink button-up shirt with a brown blazer. Behind him, a beige brick wall with noticeable grooves.
