Disability Writes – Pilot Issue
This is the pilot issue of a magazine from a national network of disabled people called Disability Writes. The network was for disabled people interested in writing in all forms (fiction, poetry, non-fiction), and existed in the early 1990s. The magazine was intended to be “a magazine committed to supporting campaigns, keeping people in touch with events, activities etc, and a springboard for ideas and debate.” Funding for the feasibility study came from Joseph Rowntree. The intention was for the magazine to become self-financing over time through advertising and subscriptions, but funding for start-up costs could not be found.
