Our friends over at Dyspla, are always championing the great work of dyslexic writers. When looking through the great resources and content on their site I came across this cool project.
On their website Dyspla say, “The Letters Project is our way of engaging with as many dyslexic writers from around the world as we can. We invite every dyslexic around the world to submit… This can be a letter, drawing, painting, poem, short story, or anything else that can be popped into an envelope.
The only requirements are that the work is original, handmade, and spell check is not allowed. Oh, and one more thing: if you’re writing a letter, they must all be handwritten.”
Each month we’re doing our bit to promote Dyslexic writing by showcasing some of our favorite letters from the project.
Heartache, Books and Confusion
Our anonymous writer speaks about their time with a bus load of books (literally). As they explore this new world of books, the writer cant help but be fascinated with all the different letters tucked in the books. However as our writer slowly begins to think reading other peoples letters is wrong, events g surreal and the writer finds them-self in a nurse’s office.
