This workshop is currently sold out. Please email amy.freeman@writer.org to be added to the waiting list.

This workshop for neurotypical parents and other family members will explore writing respectfully and honestly about our experiences supporting our autistic loved ones. The class will focus on how to write and publish our stories without falling into stereotypes, avoiding both the vilification of autism and overly-inspirational language. Our voices are powerful tools of change and the world needs to hear them!

This workshop is a part of Autism through a Literary Lens, a symposium featuring autistic and neurotypical writers leading creative writing workshops and a panel discussion on the portrayal of autism in the written word. Registration is required to attend.
