Wishbone Words is an online creative writing magazine for chronically ill and disabled writers and artists - and this lucky artist had a creative writing piece published in Issue 8!
I can't tell you how excited I am to share this news! The editor at Wishbone Words selected me to have a piece of experimental creative writing published in their August/September magazine!
This creative writing is titled "Translating the Recordings of Mr Crow"which expresses my difficulties with language-based communications. I have used a lot of onomatopoeia, puns and repetitions to convey the distractions and confusion I experience when talking with people.
Why do I have difficulty with communication? I am Autistic and have language processing difficulties that significantly affect how I understand words. I am also Dyslexic and think all in images, so overall, anything I write is a massive achievement for me. This is why I became an artist, it is my best form of communication.
If you'd like to read my experimental creative writing, you can purchase a copy of Issue 8 for just £3.00 at the Wishbone Words website. Flick through the magazine until you reach page 81, and enjoy.
There are plenty of other works within the magazine by talented artists and writers, making this your perfect read for a rainy Sunday morning cosy by the fire.
