The coronavirus pandemic has changed everyone’s lives. It is a privilege to have a book published and yet the pressure to promote can be incredibly difficult and inaccessible for many disabled writers at the best of times but especially now.
With book tours and launches delayed or postponed, the Disability Visibility Book Circle is offering one-time grants of $1000 for 15 disabled writers in the US who already have books published this year or plan to have books published in 2020 through June 30, 2021.

In light of #AWP2020 and their sudden willingness of accommodate peoples' desire to telespeak, I'm sharing this piece @karriehiggins and I wrote a while back when they SCOFFED at such a request:

@karriehiggins Karrie has already tweeted about this issue on here, go read about it. I just wanted to point out how much it hurts to see this issue embraced now, when it was such a (ridiculous) hurdle then.
@karriehiggins When #disabled writers needed accessibility, we were shamed by #awp. I will never go back until major things change when it comes to AWP and #criplit and those of us who write it. @GeorgesDryad @SFdirewolf
