Rattle “Neurodiversity” Issue
Deadline October 15 (must be received by this date). The literary journal Rattle: Poetry for the 21st Century seeks submissions for a special feature on Neurodivergent Poets in its Spring 2021 issue. Send 1-4 unpublished poems via their Submittable portal. Editors say, "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."
