I am incredibly honoured to have my essay ‘Noise Silence’ included in Black Inc’s forthcoming anthology, ‘Growing Up Disabled in Australia‘. I reread the essay yesterday, after not touching it since I submitted, and I still can’t believe little Anna’s story will be told.
2020 is going to be a big year with TWO publications… I’m pumped!
I can’t think of a better person to edit the anthology than Carly Findlay. Her book ‘Say Hello’ changed my life and my self perception. I can now proudly say I’m disabled. I don’t even feel the need to justify, or detail, my disability here with all the labels I’ve accrued. This anthology will change lives, and I can’t wait!!!!
[Edit: Thanks to Covid 19 we are delaying publication to early 2021]
