Taking Submissions: Rattle – Neurodiversity Special
Deadline: October 15th, 2020
Payment: $200 per poem and a complimentary print subscription
#71 – Spring 2021 – Neurodiversity
Poetry: Our Spring 2021 issue will feature a tribute to neurodiversity. Neurodiversity is a concept that respects neurological differences as variations of the human brain and seeks to redefine these variations in a positive way, rather than stigmatizing them. ADHD, Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum, and Tourette Syndrome fall under the umbrella of neurodiversity, to name a few. For the purpose of this issue, we encourage submissions from people with neurological differences who support, and/or identify with, the idea of neurodiversity. Poems may be written on any subject, in any style or length, but the poet must be a person with neurological differences. Our intention is to highlight a diverse and powerful community of writers that is often marginalized and mischaracterized. Please be sure to select the Tribute to Neurodiversity category.
Artwork: We still need cover art for this issue and would like to use work by an artist who identifies as neurodiverse. To submit something relevant to the theme, use the artwork category on Submittable.
Deadline: October 15, 2020
