During May and June 2020, Writers Victoria in partnership with VALID, are posting a weekly prompt for writers with disability.
Stories From Home aims to encourage, recognise, share and showcase the stories, writing and experiences of people with disability in a time when Covid-19 has halted or severely reduced their normal work, social activities and support services.
Get creative and tell us about your experience of Covid 19 in 50 words or less.
