Pentimento: A New Magazine for the Disability Community, You're Invited!

JoinUs Managing Editor's Note: From our friends at NAA:

NAA is launching a new literary magazine for the disabilty community - Pentimento.
The magazine cover will feature artwork by a disabled child or young adult.  Each issue will include  a section devoted to writing by readers on various topics, an unedited first-person perspective piece, essays, poetry, art, photographs and disability-related quotes.
Submissions may be by a disabled individual or an individual who is part of the community such as a family member, educator, therapist, etc.  Submissions by an individual who is not disabled but part of the community must have a disability-related theme.
We are seeking artwork by a child or young adult for the cover and writing by a child or young adult for a section titled "Uncut".  The first two topics for writing by readers are "Taking A Chance" and "Hope".  Submissions can be mailed or emailed via links on the website. 
Please check out the website at  and complete the form to receive the first issue free.
If you have any questions or comments, you can reach me directly at (Lori)
