Writers Victoria - Writeability Series

The award-winning Writeability program supports writers with disability wanting to develop their skills and writing careers.


Duration
1 hour

Writeability aims to remove some of the barriers that have traditionally prevented people with disabilities from connecting with writing and publishing. It provides tools and information to support people with disabilities who want to tell their own stories in their own way.

Carly Findlay is an award-winning writer, speaker, and appearance activist. She writes on disability and appearance diversity issues for publications including The ABC, Daily Life, and SBS. She was named as one of Australia's most influential women in the 2014 Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards.

She has appeared on ABC's 'You Can't Ask That' and 'Cyber Hate' with Tara Moss, and has been a regular on various ABC radio programs. She organised the history-making Access to Fashion - a Melbourne Fashion Week event featuring disabled models. Carly identifies as a proud disabled woman and lives with a rare severe skin condition, Ichthyosis.

In this recording of a webinar held in November 2017 as part of the Write-ability Goes Regional and Online program, Carly Findlay discusses how emerging (and established) writers can get published, pitch their work, write the personal and political, cope with trolling, and connect with others in the writing community.
