Dear Readers,

Welcome to our second issue of NeurodivergART!

Spring is here and along with the change of seasons comes growth: flowers blooming, seedlings unfurling, sun shining late into the evening.

In accordance with that, we have grown, too, since our first issue. We have made a few changes with our submissions guidelines, namely that we now accept previously published material.

Everyone on the NeurodivergART staff spends quite a bit of time on social media and blog sites, interacting with other neurodivergent artists. We see beautiful work that we would like to reprint in our magazine. So, we examined our mission statement again: To create a magazine from and for neurodivergent artists. To offer a submissions process that is straightforward and succinct.

Many literature and art magazines require works that have not been published elsewhere. This can include blogs, online shops, and social media pages. Our decision to accept that work deviates from the typical approach. But we are not typical and embrace our divergence with gusto.  

This decision to accept previously published work can make a big difference to the neurodivergent artists who support themselves with their art. We can be another venue to showcase that work. We also include links to sites per your request, including those very blogs, online shops, and social media pages. We are here to support you and your endeavors.

And remember:


So …

Please enjoy, please submit, and please share.

Thank you and with warmest regards,

Saraswati Chand
