About
Disability Acts
Disability Essays, Screeds, and Manifestos by Disabled Writers for Everyone
Note from the editor

We founded DISABILITY ACTS in August of 2018 because we were fed up with the challenges disability writers face placing our work in normate magazines. It's not like we haven't been successful hewing to normate requirements-we have been. And we appreciate the magazines that have given us space to write about disability. But we, like other disabled writers, stories about editors who didn't believe what we wrote was even real. Or we struggled to tell our stories within the parameters set by the magazine. CripLit is still a burgeoning genre, and it deserves its own space. Here's one of them.
