Developing a career as a writer can be hard. As part of Access2Arts’ Thank driting development project for emerging disabled writer, we hosted the ‘Thank Forum for Disabled Writers’ where four writers shared their thoughts on developing as a disabled writer.
Now, Access2Arts has turned their presentations into four podcasts so that even if you missed the Thank Forum you can tune in to get insight into how you can build your writing practise into a career.
