How to Write Disabled Characters
Are you writing a physically, mentally or developmentally disabled character in your story? If so, this class is for you. We will be learning how to represent characters with various disabilities and what each disabled community hopes for in their portrayals. Disabled readers are always looking for characters who acknowledge their disability and have independent, compelling arcs at the same time. As an Autistic writer and sensitivity reader, your teacher will guide you in creating disabled characters in fiction. Students will get priority on which disabilities to focus on.
