Blind Writers

Writers Redmond Szell and Tanvir Bush discuss their experience of becoming published authors and other writing opportunities for aspirant blind and visually impaired creatives.

Authors Redmond Szell and Tanvir Bush discuss their experience of becoming published writers and talk to Peter White about other writing opportunities for aspirant blind and partially-sighted creatives.
They consider the question of whether to reveal one's blindness to publishers and whether a writer's blindness is a good selling point or something which can sometimes work against them.
Can you learn creative writing? Tanvir and Redmond offer advice to listeners who wish to reach their literary potential.
