Today is International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), a time to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
One in five Australians has a disability, yet disabled people are still underrepresented in the media and in literature. Thankfully, that is starting to change with recent publications such as Unseen by Jacinta Parsons, Say Hello by Carly Findlay, and the 2018 anthology Meet Me at the Intersection, a collection of writing by diverse authors.
Our friends at Black Inc. have put together another anthology in the bestselling ‘Growing Up’ series, Growing Up Disabled in Australia, set for release in February next year. The collection has been edited by Carly Findlay and features writing and artwork from 46 contributors, including Booked Out’s Astrid Edwards and Jessica Walton.
You can pre-order the book now through Black Inc..
