Disabled Writers Information Submission

Thanks for your interest in Disabled Writers! This resource is specifically designed to help editors connect with disabled people working in journalism, or trying to break into the field.

For the convenience of journalists and editors, it also includes disabled experts who are available to serve as sources, such as attorneys, physicians, social workers, and others with professional experience or education that makes them expert sources in their fields. 

If you aren't a journalist or expert, this initiative isn't well suited for you. We wish you the best of luck in your endeavors!

A general geographic location — Germany, or South Carolina — is fine. This helps editors know which time zone you're in.
Please provide a link for download and include an image description (a brief caption that describes your photograph — think of how you'd describe yourself to someone who doesn't know what you look like). You may also send a file/description to disabled.writers at gmail dot com.
