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.

Hello, my name is Sydnee Brashears, and stories have taken over my life. Comics, news, fiction, nonfiction, it doesn't matter the genre so long as there's a story involved. This love of the story led me to be a Writing Major at the Savannah College of Art and Design, with a Sequential Art minor.

My passion for stories stems from several sources, but I choose to credit being autistic for the bulk of it. Boosting creativity and logic, my neurotype gives me a unique empathetic connection and viewpoint with the world at large. It also helps that I am rather picky about grammar as a result. I feel an intense passion for the written (or typed) word, and gives me strong self-motivation to work on things inside and outside the workforce. Fast at learning and slow to give up, I strive to fill any need a workplace has. I am as adaptable as water.

In my spare time I love to watercolor, and I'm teaching myself Chinese.
