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 grew up at the Renaissance faires of California and went on to work in public transportation as a commercial driver (buses). I have traveled significantly within the United States while disabled and alone and love food. I have several inherited genetic diseases and limited mobility that ranges from visibly to invisibly disabled. Transportation is a special interest area of mine, and the transportation industry is often incredibly ableist.
