Six neurodivergent writers were selected, via an open call, to create new short stories inspired by their own personal experiences of being neurodivergent. None of them knew each other and none of them had published work before. Some had a rough idea of what they wanted to share, while others had no idea where to start.
To discuss this creative experiment, we’re welcoming project commissioner and author of Every Brain, Ali Wilson, alongside two of the contributors – Kofi Gyamfi and Lizzie Milton – to find out what the experience was like, hear their stories first-hand and learn how amazing things can happen when we untether ourselves from the typical rules of literature.
The panel is followed by a writing workshop for neurodivergent writers (see Writing at Tangents, separate listing).
