Inaugural Call for Submissions from Neurodivergent Perspectives

What We Want:

Bold, unapologetic perspectives. Work that funnels sunlight through a magnifying glass to scorch the surface. Stir up emotions that lurch from the gut or radiate heat from the sternum. Infuriate us. Amuse us. Leave us in quiet relief. Whether the emotional charge that pulses through your work is subtle or bludgeoning, wield it with precision.

Neurodiversity is part of intersectionality. Submissions are not expected to explicitly focus on neurodivergence; though, the focus is welcomed. In short: Your submissions needn’t mention neurodiversity at all. The fact that your work sprang from your mind or eye is what is most important.

Accepted content will be published online and in a forthcoming print anthology. Visit thefatcoyote.com for more information or email us at [email protected]

Quota: This project has established a quota. Submissions will close when it is reached.
