As you set it down you think, this isn’t for me. It’s not an assertive statement, “this isn’t my taste,” but an actual feeling of exclusion. Granted, every story isn’t relatable to every person. But when you feel overlooked or worse left out, it’s a bummer. Over time these moments accumulate and patterns of inaccessibility emerge. How do readers with disabilities counter disenfranchisement?
Well, by doing something about it.
I’m introducing ReVisions, one small way to reset the default perspective. A way to show how living with vision loss doesn’t mean living less. From time to time, I’m going to analyze published writing and offer suggestions for greater inclusivity.
The first edition of ReVisions will hit your inbox soon.
