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 a young and goal oriented writer living in St. Louis, MO. Currently, my writing lives mostly on my blog, Rad Cat Lady, while I transition from writing web content to working on personal essays, food and drink features, theatre and media reviews and analysis, and pieces on mental health and illness.

My background is in social and cultural analysis and I offer a unique and critical perspective. But, my writing isn't limited to the analytical or editorial; I also produce high quality academic research and writing, blog posts, web content, and news items. I am excellent at copyediting and revising, and can offer holistic feedback on completed drafts or works in progress.
