Free audiobooks for blind writers.

While I’m finalizing my interactive fiction game, that will be released for beta testing and reading soon, I came across a page that has a lot of free online college courses. So, I started looking through those and that lead me to other pages and, well, you know how the World Wide Web works.

I wondered how tailored these would be to the blind though. Either accidentally, or on purpose. I was looking for writing resources, mostly. I didn’t find much so, well, that made me want to compile a list of free audio books for writers.

And here they all are. In this very post. If I’ve missed anything or if you think my tastes in writing books stinks then shoot me a message or something.

Before I list them though, I found this free modern science fiction writing course on YouTube. The lecturer is Brandon Sanderson! Ahem. Anyway.

All of these can be downloaded through NLS in the United States. I don’t know international equivalent’s so this list will have NLS BARD titles. The DB number is included. I’ve linked the books so you can read the synopsis and do with it as you will.

I’ve broken this list up into categories. The categories are headings.

Craft and style of writing.
