About the Event

PLEASE NOTE this event is specifically for neurodivergent-identified queer authors. No diagnosis necessary, but please don’t join if you are simply ‘interested’ or if ‘my nephew is autistic.’

Introductions, checking in, creation of a space and validating space.

Exploring the potential for a queer ND Writers Group.

Writing Prompt: Autistic Joy. Writing for 30 mins on what gives you joy as a queer autistic person

Discussion : existing representation of our community in fiction, memoir and poetry and what we think we can bring to that.

Breakout rooms will always be accessible for check-ins and taking a breather.

POTENTIAL OUTCOMES:  1. Making a bid for Arts Council funding, with the feedback from the group. 2. Creating a validating space for neurodivergent queer authors. 3. Underline the interconnectivity between queerness and neurodivergence and seek to find platforms to celebrate our voices.

About Jorik Mol

Jorik Mol (he/him) is an queer autistic author, currently writing his first non-fiction book for Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Jorik is in high demand as an educator on neurodiversity:
