14.47: Writing Characters With Physical Disabilities
Your Hosts: Piper, Dan, and Tempest, with special guest Nicola Griffith
In this episode we discuss how to faithfully represent people with physical disabilities through the characters we create. Our guest, Nicola Griffith, walks us through the process of rigorously imagining how the world might look to someone with a particular disability.
Credits: This episode was mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Put yourself into the point of view of a character with a strong defining characteristic. Visit a restaurant, and explore how it might look through their eyes rather than your own.
Thing of the week: So Lucky, by Nicola Griffith.
