TASH Connections: Call for Proposals

We are thrilled that Dr. Beth Myers, Executive Director of The Taishoff Center, will be a guest editor on a special issue of TASH Connections, an online magazine written exclusively for, and by, TASH members.

Proposals are invited for papers for the issue of the magazine on the theme of
Perspectives on Post-Secondary Education: Voices of Self-Advocates and Students with
Disabilities. It will feature inclusion, advocacy, and positive stories or examples about the
experience of attending a college program.

The editors are looking for pieces from self-advocates/people with disabilities attending college. While they are primarily seeking entries from participants in postsecondary programs, they’re open to other submissions from families or friends who write alongside a person attending a program regarding joint experiences.
Examples of the types of submissions they are looking for include:
● Writings about your experiences at college and how those experiences helped you
become an advocate, or helped you become more a part of your campus, community,
● Pictures, videos, or digital stories of your experiences
● Poetry or other creatively-written stories
● Other ways they haven’t thought of to represent your experiences.

They are currently seeking proposals. Proposals should be approximately 300 words. Inquires for proposal ideas are welcomed.

Deadline for proposal submission: February 15, 2016
Authors receive invitation to submit full paper: March 15, 2017
Deadline of submission of full papers to special issue editors: April 15, 2017
Publication in TASH Connections: May/June 2017
