Here we are, read us: Women, disability and writing is about to be launched, offering readers an insight into the relationship between writing and disability.

It's a little book with big ideas, featuring diverse,  well-known and emerging women writers.  The  important thing they have in common is that they all share the lived experience of disability. 

Eight novelists, poets, essayists, playwrights, memoirists and bloggers have contributed to the book, including Charlotte Simmonds, Tusiata Avia, Michele Leggott and the late Robin Hyde.

Lynn Freeman speaks with Charlotte, and to the co-founders of Crip The Lit, who published the book, Robyn Hunt and Trish Harris.  Trish has also contributed to Here we are, read us.it.
