Call for Submissions: Personal Essays of Everyday Life

Research Study

Through a grant from the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community, I am publishing a collection of personal essays depicting everyday life from individuals with Autism, ADD, Down Syndrome, OCD, and other neurological idiosyncrasies.

I wish to extend a call for submissions to the Fighting for Autism Community. Right now, I am looking for stories from community members of black, Hispanic, Latino, and other culturally diverse backgrounds.

Submissions should be no longer than five pages, and are due by April 30th at the absolute latest as an email attachment to If you have any questions, or if you wish to participate, but are concerned about the deadline, please contact me at the same email address.
