DID YOU KNOW THAT:
Disability Writes set up in 2004 with the aim of supporting disabled writers to learn and develop creative writing skills?
We were originally funded by Arts Council England.
Disabled people, including people with physical and sensory impairments, learning difficulties/disabilities, experience of mental ill health and long term ill health, are now able to use Personal Budgets (through their Local Authority) to access the site and use the services.
It costs less than £10 a week to subscribe. For this you receive feedback on your creative writing, have your own private writing area, have the chance for information and tips and to be published on the site.
Disability Writes is run by Just Services Limited, a small cooperative based in Leicester.
We have supported disabled writers both in the UK and across the world! Some have now gone on to be published writers, set up their own business and gain confidence in their creative writing skills.
What inspires you? Is it watching para athletes in the Commonwealth Games, the 100 year anniversary of the First World War, or something close to home? Whatever your inspiration, use it to develop your writing. Sometimes, the best thing is to just get started; don't worry too much about the end result - get going and write. You may write a lot that you never use but you can get a lot of satisfaction in the process and begin to develop your skills as a writer.
