Are you a Wisconsinite who is blind or has a visual impairment? Do you like to write? Would you like to share your stories of living with a visual impairment or a family member's visual impairment?

“The Outlook from Here” writers’ group is looking for new members to help write our blog. To date, our group has written over 50 stories on subjects ranging from dating to self-advocacy to seeking employment and everything in between.

You can review all of our stories at  No experience is necessary and we will gladly help you to brainstorm about topics, as well as provide feedback, editing advice and writing tips. There is no pay, but the rewards of helping people understand life with a visual impairment and making new friends who share your passion for writing and for public education are priceless.
