Calling for stories from self advocates

The CLBC Editorial Board is looking for stories from self advocates for the upcoming Summer edition of the Celebrate Diverse ABILITIES magazine.

The theme for the next edition is: The Many Paths to Independence. 

We are looking for 250-word stories about what independence looks and feels like to people with diverse abilities, and the different paths people take to gain independence in their lives.

Story submissions will be accepted until May 31, 2019. Selected authors will be paid $100 for their story and photo to be published in the CLBC Celebrate Diverse ABILITIES magazine. Preference will be given to authors who have not yet been in published in the magazine.
