I had the honour of being invited by Canadian dark fantasy author Dianna Gunn to moderate a panel called Accessibility in Worldbuilding as part of her Worldbuilding Deep Dive con in February of this year.
This is a topic that’s dear to my heart as a disabled, hard-of-hearing, and autistic reader and a writer (Iris and the Crew is totally about this type of worldbuilding). So, I jumped at the chance!
The panelists are just stars: Dianna Gunn, Stephen Graham King, and Mary Kit Caelsto.
You can watch it here!

Cait is also the author of humorous space opera novels Life in the ’Cosm and The Stealth Lovers, and she is the co-editor of the Prix Aurora Award nominated anthology Nothing Without Us. When Cait’s not writing, she’s editing manuscripts and running The Spoonie Authors Network, a blog whose contributors manage disabilities and/or chronic conditions. Her latest new adventure is hosting the In the ’Cosm podcast, which is really an excuse to gush over authors she admires.
