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: In this photo there is a young women with a big smile on her face. It's there most of the time.  I have short brown hair with blonde streaks. I am not very tall but what does that matter, cause I am in a wheelchair anyway. I have big brown eyes and don't miss much, so don't let me catch you doing something you shouldn't be doing. Just kidding, I can keep a secret. Got any good ones?

I was born in Abbotsford, BC, and I now reside in New Westminster. I am not a journalism student but I am a writer. Writing is a true passion of mine, in fact, I have published three books. My first two books are both volumes of poetry, and my most recent publication is a children’s Christmas story
