The Limping Chicken features articles by a range of deaf writers, and we welcome YOUR contributions!
Since this site was launched in February this year, we have published writing by over 60 deaf writers, many of whom have written for us again and again. We get over 1000 views a day, and we’re now fast approaching 300,000 views!
Just take a look at our writers page to get an idea of what kind of articles we publish http://limpingchicken.com/writers/ and to find out what the most popular articles on this site are so far, go to: http://limpingchicken.com/most-viewed/
You may be a professional writer, someone who writes a blog, or perhaps you’ve never written anything for publication before.
Either way, if we like your idea, we’re ready to help you turn it into a piece published here on the site!
Basically, we’re looking for articles that shine a light on deaf experience.
You might have a funny story to tell, a fresh idea, or an opinion you have. It could be a news story, or even a tale you’d prefer to tell anonymously for The Secret Deafie column.
Whatever it is, just write a short email telling us roughly what you’d like to say! We can’t promise we’ll say yes, but you will get a reply.
Your story doesn’t have to be written in English. If you’re more comfortable telling your story in BSL, you can send us a video that will be added to the site with a written transcription!
Simply get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
