Disability Writes

Just Services with funding from Arts Council England set up Disability Writes to help disabled people who face barriers in getting support and encouragement to write. It promotes the work of disabled writers to a wide audience of disabled and non-disabled people through its Web site and printed publications. People with disabilities can post their work on the site and receive constructive feedback.
Thanks to the Internet and technology, I can do writing — something I might not have done without it. Sure, we have the relay services and all, but some people don’t respond well to calls through the service.
I called a potential client through the relay yesterday and got a one-liner then a hang up. However, last Thursday, I had a great conversation with Janine of JAS Coaching and Training. So my experience with the relay is mixed, but more on the negative side.
