Growing Up Disabled in Australia will be the fifth book in the highly acclaimed and best-selling ‘Growing Up’ series from Black Inc.
Editor Carly Findlay says: ‘The quality of writing is extraordinary, and there is a definite hunger from disabled people to tell their stories (and to read others’ stories). This anthology shows the diversity of disability—not just in terms of impairments, but also experiences. I can’t wait to launch this book and see these writers fly. I hope it creates a sense of identity and belonging to a community—for the contributors and for readers.’
Contributors include: Jordon Steele-John, Sarah Firth, Dion Beasley, Astrid Edwards, Jessica Walton, Carly-Jay Metcalfe, Isis Holt, Gayle Kennedy and El Gibbs.
