Dear OMQ Contributors,
Please find below a call for submissions for first-person accounts about disability and employment. Open Minds and NISA aren't affiliated with reachAbility, but it sounds to me like a good opportunity for our writers, so I'm passing along the news.
Wishing you all the best,
Editor, Open Minds Quarterly
Be inspired. Be moved. Be part of the change.

The submissions are first-hand accounts of employment experiences, and can be submitted in a variety of formats. Topics can include (but are not limited to) how your disability affected your getting a job, feelings of acceptance or exclusion from staff and management, and barriers encountered at work. Submission deadline is March 15, 2010.
