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 am 35 years old. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic degenerative disc and bone diseases, have endured surgeries and have been suffering from chronic pain since I was a child. I have, over the past year, been a contributing writer with The Mighty and have 16 total published articles with more in progress. I am also disabled.
