Because we all deserve to see ourselves in literature. Because diversity matters. Because representation maters.
The Discriptionary is for everyone.
For disabled readers, who want to journey to new worlds in a body resembling their own, or who want to read the thoughts of a mind in a familiar way.
For writers of #CripLit, to discover the titles that they should be reading and the authors, publishers and agents that brought them to us.
For all people – minority or not – that want to increase the diversity on their bookshelf.
