The North Country Center for Independence, (NCC) in Plattsburgh, New York, is looking for original writing by people with disabilities, on disability-related topics, for publication on the NCCI Blog. http://ncciblog.blogspot.com
Each month NCCI will post up to two selected pieces written by people with disabilities. NCCI will pay writers $100 for each selected piece. Submissions should meet the following guidelines:
- 300-600 words long.
- Must relate in some way to the experiences and issues of living with physical, intellectual, or mental disabilities.
- We are generally looking for writing focused on the everyday practical, social, and / or emotional experiences of living with disabilities, not on medical research, treatments, or therapies.
Some editorial assistance and feedback will be provided, including comments and suggestions on how drafts can be improved before publication.
NCCI’s Executive Director will choose up to two pieces per month to be published. After each item is posted, the writer may submit a voucher for payment, which will be made within 30 days of receipt.
Submit drafts by email, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, paper drafts may be delivered to NCCI at 80 Sharron Avenue, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. For more information call us at 518-563-9058.
The deadline for final drafts is the 15th of each month.
