Are you interested in "paying it forward"?

Are you a disabled or neurodivergent author or illustrator? Then keep reading.

Have you been traditionally published and wanna pay it forward? Either answer is totally OK, but this post is aimed at those who already are.

If you answered "yes" to both of those questions up there ^^ then you might be interested in a new organisation that is springing into life in January 2021. Here's the post that explains more about it, copied and pasted:

As some of you may already know, I am one of the cofounder’s of Disabled Creatives Universe, a mentor program being launched in January 2021 to help lift more disabled and neurodivergent voices in the publishing industry.
I’m personally trying to find a way to encourage more own voice picture books and middle grade, as both could really do with a boost!
We are doing a second call out to specifically reach out to more disabled BIPOC potencial mentors (traditionally published authors and illustrators) and would really appreciate if you could help us spread the word ❤️"

They want to hear from traditionally published authors and illustrators who are disabled or Neurodivergent and wanna pay it forward to others who are struggling to get taken on by agents and publishers.
