NeurodiVERSE, with Janine Booth, Kate Fox and Rob Steventon (online)

Join editors Janine Booth, Kate Fox and Rob Steventon for this selection of readings from Flapjack Press‘s new anthology, NeurodiVERSE.

‘Neurodivergence’ is defined as a variance in cognitive or neurological function from that considered ‘typical’ or ‘normal’. NeurodiVERSE is poetry about the neurodivergent experience specifically by neurodivergent writers, providing a powerful and diverse representation, with positive, authentic and progressive portrayals.

Featuring over fifty contributors from the UK and across the world, and eight sections with introductory notes about definitions, issues and societal perceptions, NeurodiVERSE is open to all who wish to learn about neurodiversity − and to all lovers of poetry. It was edited by Janine Booth, Kate Fox, Rob Steventon & Paul Neads.

Seven of the writers included in the book are participants in Writing East Midland‘s Beyond the Spectrum project, which delivers writing workshops for autistic adults and young people facilitated by writers who are themselves neurodivergent. Read more about Beyond the Spectrum here.
