Nearly 1 in 5 people in the U.S. identify as living with a disability (ADA, US Census) and the numbers increase globally; but this representation is unique in that it is marginalized in both accessibility to narratives and representation in those narratives.
Sun Literary has certified accessibility specialists on our team, and can provide Own Voice expert consultation for making your narratives, website, content and platforms both representative of and accessible to Communities of Disability.
Sun Literary's leadership embodies representation in this vast community and is a member of the Diversability Leadership Collective. If you would like to offer suggestions or request accessibility consultation: Contact Us.

On assignment with American Cowboy some years ago for a conservation article featuring Tejon Ranch in California, my son and I rode to the top of the Tehachapi Range with local vaqueros. Here lived the Kitanemuk People, whose descendants today are enrolled in the Tejon Indian Tribe of California. Sun Lit supports returning ancestral lands to tribal stewardship.
