The stories in this category have disability related themes.
I would like to know if I can access your stories/poems/literature so that I can use them as material to sensitize people on disability issues. If yes, let me know how I can access it.
I live in India, Secunderabad and work for an NGO that works on women’s issues.
I’ve emailed you back , thanks!

What do you need to know?
Hi all, was wondering if you could help me out? I run a centre for young women with disabilities here in Kenya and was wondering if you could supply any poems which I could use in class? It would be wonderful if anyone would be able to share their stories and I can then pass these on to the young women. Thanks very much
Since I’ve written everything on here myself except for one poem, I don’t have other people I can ask to provide new materials for your class and I work so I don’t have time to do that. But many teachers use the poems that are already up on this site in their classes, if you’d like to do that.
Thanks and good luck in your class!
Hi, i am a Kenyan lady with a disability, i too run a small group of women affected by disabilities either directly or indirectly, so you can ask any question and i will be glad to share with you, you can reach me on email@example.com thanks for being part of the disabled world.
thank you for your comment! so nice to hear from members of the disability community around the world 🙂
Hi Ruth sorry for the confusion, I was unable to access anyone of the poems due to very slow internet connection here in Kenya but not I can see all of your great work
Thankz for the informations!
Hi. I manage a library in Second Life which contains only books (both fiction and poetry) by disabled authors. I have read many of the poems and stories on this site and am wondering if I could use some to to place in this library. All credit would go to the author as well as an URL to this location in the notecard.
This is an excellent site. 🙂
Thanks, that would be great. Please let me know what the name of the library is so I can check it out. My email is rampracer@Gmail.com
When i put stories on my website, I put SCARY STORIES!
I am a 10th grade teacher in Florida looking for a story to replace an excerpt of “My Left Foot.” Any suggestions on stories which carry the theme of learning to live with a disability?
On this site, there’s a story called Grandpa’s Tree which talks about how a family learns to live with their son’s disability, taking the lead from him. The story Trophies is about a high school football player who deals with learning how to live with a disability after being shot.
I invite my readers to add to this list, but will point you toward the writings of Kenny Fries, who is a poet and essayist .
I have a disability and I am going to school to be able to share my story.

To Whom It May Concern
My name is Tracey Hicks and I am 29 living in Perth Western Australia. I was born with spina bifida and I have had the passion to write for quite a while about my life living with a disability. I want to get the message out there that it isn’t all bad having a disability, in fact, it has only shaped the strong person I have become today. I believe I have three (if not more books within me). I have the idea of centreing my books around my disability and turning it into a fictionally told story. I have different ideas but putting it all together is proving difficult. Once this process is done and I have written them, would it be possible to have them published within your company?
Look forward to speaking with you soon.
Thank you for your message. It’s always nice to hear from other writers. Unfortunately, I don’t have a publishing company. I encourage you to keep writing and submitting your work. Your voice about your experiences in living with a disability is an important part of the fabric of society and should be heard. Keep at it and let me know how things are going.
Hi, my name is Diah. I come from Indonesia. If you don’t mind, i intend to translate your short stories into Indonesian and post them on my personal blog. It is okay for you? Please reply me.
I appreciate that you’re translating my work so more can read it. And that is okay with me if you put a copyright at the end of every story with my name and a link to this blog.
I’d also like to have a link to your blog!
Thank you for your prompt reply. I am really glad to know that you allow me to copy your short stories. I will always put your name at the end of my posting.

I am doing a short documentary on a specially able boy… I would like to have some of your stories to read and to draw inspiration from… Can I get them in my mail??
Hi Ruth, Your poems are quite nice. I have a friend who is an adult living with a learning disability and a mental health challenge. He’s trying to publish his short stories. Can you recommend any place he might publish them? Kind regards, Jennifer
Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
It’s always useful to read articles from other authors
and practice something from their websites.
It is really very useful. Thank you.
Hi there, I’m looking for some short stories I can use in the peer assistant curriculum I’m developing. I’m a special education teacher working with a moderate/severe population, and I’ve started a peer program that I want to bolster through the use of literature and other media. Please let me know whether you would allow me to use your work. Thank you!
