Accessibility in Worldbuilding panel video available now!

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!

Closed captions are available for this video.

Cait Gordon is a disability advocate who wants everyone to be wise and think of others as we battle COVID-19!

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.
