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.

Kathryne Husk is an award-winning and nationally exhibited artist and activist. She was the recent subject of the short documentary Kathryne: Uncensored, and her artwork and poetry has been published in various literary journals. Husk’s activist work has lead to numerous lectures and presentations on Intersectionality and issues facing the disability community. Her current focus is breaking down the barriers of how disabled bodies are viewed in contemporary art and in society, and bringing awareness to the lack of accessibility within the Kansas City arts scene. She currently paints and writes out of her home studio in Kansas City.
