My Tale Too was built in January 2018 as a response to the complete lack of disabled women as leads in stories. We wanted to change this by asking women with disabilities themselves to shift this narrative. ‘My tale too’ is a writing project for women with disabilities to retell fairy tales and popular stories with protagonists who are like them.

This writing workshop will be conducted by the award winning and acclaimed published writer and poet, Aditi Rao. She will take us through 6 virtual group trainings through all of May and help craft a story.
