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.

They're wearing aviator sunglasses; matte indigo lipstick; a black cord necklace with three small pendants: a guitar pick, a tiny spoon, and a teal koru (Māori spiral/loop); a white tanktop with a blue, green, and pink flower pattern; an unbuttoned velvet indigo waistcoat; and black denim cutoffs. They have a blue and red camera strap with the words “canon” and “EOS” in white hung around their neck, and two woven cedar bracelets on their left (viewer’s right) arm.
