Publisher Description

How do you accurately write an autistic character?

You care about writing diversely. You know how important it is to have accurate representation in your stories. You want to include characters whose experience is outside of yours. It's easy to find examples of writing gone wrong, but where do you start to get it right? 

The Incomplete Guide to Writing Autistic Characters can help. Written and collaborated by several of Salt & Sage's autistic editors and sensitivity readers, this guide is a compilation of important things you should know before you sit down to write an autistic character. You'll find discussions about stimming, conditions associated with autism, and problematic tropes in the media, along with many others. Each section also includes how to best apply this to your writing!

You'll find explanations from our talented staff, with links, explanations, and ideas for how to write your autistic character authentically and with real respect.

By no means is this exhaustive, but it is a great place to start.

Disclaimer: No one book or perspective can reflect the diverse experiences of autistic folx, nor should you use this as your only guide. We strongly encourage you to hire a sensitivity reader (or several!), to listen to autistic voices, to read #ownvoices books by autistic authors.
