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 was born with spastic CP. I've been a professional writer for my entire career, mostly writing about sports. I currently work in the Marketing and Communications department at Ithaca College, and have a blog where I write about the challenges of being a parent with a disability. My posts on parenting with a disability have been picked up frequently by other publications, including the Disabled Parenting Project, AbleThrive, Fatherly, Parent.co, and Today Parents.
