AutSpoken

The Autism Acceptance Project is accepting submissions from autistic people from all over the world. A mechanism will be set up on AutSpoken within The Autism Acceptance Project website (under construction).

This project was inspired by an autistic woman, from Topeka, Kansas, Barbara Moran, who sent in her life story and some photographs which will be exhibited at Lonsdale Gallery. She submitted photographs and tiny drawings that give meaning to her story.

Submissions can be of poems, or short stories, or your personal story about autism in mailable or email-able format. Please do not send any artwork, unless they are your drawings or photos fitting an 8 1/2 X 11 inch page, and are specific to your writing.

"Winning" entries (simply meaning we only have so much room to print and/or exhibit your work) will be rewarded a token fee of $50.00 (CDN) and will be displayed at The Lonsdale Gallery in Toronto during the month of October 2006. All entries will remain the property of The Autism Acceptance Project unless you specify that you want the work returned to you. The Autism Acceptance Project will keep your work on it's website in the AutSpoken section. It may also reproduce your writing in gallery materials.

Please include a return address and telephone number in your package.

My son made a powerpoint about his autism for School. His teacher loved it. Would it be acceptable if I could find a way to send it?
