Disabled? Want to be a Travel Writer?

Disability Writes Logo

Disability Writes has a unique mandate. It is a service for writers with disabilities.

From the web site:

This website has been set up by Just Services with funding from Arts Council England. Many disabled people face barriers in getting support and encouragement to write. This may be because there is:

  • A lack of physical access to places where non-disabled people find such support.

  • A lack of understanding, or an unwillingness to listen to the support needed by disabled people.

  • An unwillingness to consider that what disabled writers have to say is of value.

  • An unwillingness to give honest, constructive feedback to disabled people.

Disability Writes actively supports and encourages disabled writers, whatever their previous writing experience. It promotes the work of disabled writers to a wide audience of disabled and non-disabled people through this website and printed publications.
