Blanket Sea Press was launched in 2020. We provide a devoted publishing space for chronically ill, mentally ill, neurodivergent, and disabled poets and authors. Our mission is to promote awareness, empathy, and action around disability rights, research, and advocacy. We do not support or publish ableism, inspiration porn, or toxic positivity. All of our press editors have lived experience of disability.
