Readings from new poetry anthology NeurodiVERSE, a collection of poems about the experience of neurodivergence from neurodivergent writers.

Join editors Janine Booth and Kate Fox 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.

Hosted by Five Leaves Bookshop.
