Writer and cartoonist Alyssa Graybeal is inviting participants to join her Group Coaching for Crip Memoirists. Identifying as “queer crip editor/book coach and award-winning memoirist,” Graybeal’s mission is to “ignite budding crip memoirists to start writing their books with confidence” in an effort to “untangle ableism” and empower marginalized communities of all kinds. If you are a writer who identifies as disabled, chronically ill, or neurodiverse, and you’re “ready to take down ableism through storytelling,” Graybeal promises a “superchill, supportive environment” to help get you started – or perhaps continue – to develop your story to share with others. The 60-minute weekly group sessions start on Monday, July 11, 2022. Find more details at her website here. Graybeal’s manuscript, Floppy: Tales of a Genetic Freak of Nature at the End of the World won the 2020 Red Hen Press Nonfiction Award and is forthcoming Spring 2023.
