A bold concept
Renaissens publishing house offers a fresh perspective about disability by publishing and promoting the writings of blind, visually impaired and deaf authors, as well as people in wheelchairs or suffering from reduced mobility. Experiencing prejudice from birth, adulthood or more recently in life, these people often feel excluded among others, or stigmatized by society. It can lead to loss of identity and reduced self-confidence. This is where Renaissens comes in. Its strategy is to value their writing skills and offer them a real publishing adventure in becoming authors, as well as it allows writing to fulfill its therapeutic function.
