AUT SENSE (In progress...)
A compilation of works around the theme of Autistic Empathy, Love and Intuition
We are always on the lookout for stories by autistics and autistic medical professionals. This ongoing project aims to challenge stereotypes and misunderstandings surrounding autistic communication and sensitivity, and to unearth the intuitive abilities of autistics.
Submissions can be approx 1000-2000 words but there is no fixed length. Pieces selected may be revised in consultation with the writer and will be sensitivity checked / edited prior to final publication.
You may write whatever is meaningful to you but would also help others. Focus on your journey to diagnosis / the impact of your relationships on your development - positive as well as negative. We are also very interested in sensory experiences, such as precognition, hearing voices or 'unusual' sensory episodes, synesthesia etc - and how these have helped, hindered, or led to mental health issues / misdiagnosis.
Email your submission.
We actively seek, support and publish the work of underrepresented artists and writers. We also welcome self diagnosed autistics/NDs.
Also feel free to contact us if you have a book idea, need advice, or would like to submit a manuscript for consideration. Whatever stage you are at, we are able to provide free advice and honest, critical, creative feedback to help get you on track.
