The universe is filled with aliens—creatures with different histories, cultures, and even biologies—who may seem strange to us. But our world is filled with a diversity of people, many of whom find each other strange. One particular group finds the rest of humanity especially strange: neurodivergent people.
Would neurodivergent folks find themselves at an advantage in dealing with aliens?
Let’s find out.
We want to publish your short stories, flash fiction, poetry, and art exploring encounters between neurodivergent people and neurodivergent aliens. We are looking for:
Short stories up to 6k words
Flash fiction up to 1k words
Poetry up to 100 lines
Black-and-white line art illustrations
We are paying $100 per short story, $50 for flash fiction, $50 for poems, and $50-100 for illustrations.
Check out our full guidelines at www.neurodiversiverse.com, and feel free to share them with your friends who write (or read) science fiction!
In this anthology, we’ve collected 23 perspectives in this book from people of all ages who share their personal and emotional clubfoot experiences in their own words.
This book will take you from the moment of the clubfoot diagnosis, through the parenting caregiver experience, to children and adults living with clubfoot. These stories of inspiration, challenge, and strength reveal what got people through the journey, what they wish they’d known sooner, and what they’re grateful for.
