In 2012, I discovered a website called Disability Horizons; an online magazine dedicated to those with disabilities.
While browsing this site, I came across a writers section that were asking for readers to contribute articles. I contacted the editor and pitched an article giving a review of the accessibility at Reading Festival. The pitch was accepted and I wrote and published the article.
Since then I’ve become a regular writer for them, writing a mixture of pieces I’ve pitched myself and ideas provided by the editor. I’ve written articles about Top 10 accessible days out in the UK, investigating the quality of access in cinemas, Top 10 disabled male celebrities plus many more.
I recently got the chance to interview BBC weather presenter, Lucy Martin, who was born without her right forearm and hand. It was a great experience and I was honoured to be given the responsibility.
Being a part of the Disability Horizons contributing writers team has been a valuable experience. I have learnt more about the disability community and gained more writing skills. I aim to continue to be a loyal writer to the magazine and hope to get involved in more advanced projects in the near future.
