A shift in the nature of light reveals an eighth colour in thevisible spectrum. A boy befriends the last tree in the natural world. A singlemother finds help at the darkest point of her life. A young man finds himselftrapped in a university overrun by crows.These stories and more form In Other Words, an anthology asdiverse as the writers themselves. Some cover trauma, societal issues andstigma; others offer fragments of hope and light. Some reach back in time whileothers transport us to another dimension altogether. There is heartbreak, wit,humour, poignancy and above all a mastery of the imagination.What these transcendent stories share is that they were createdby autistic writers, people often dismissed as unimaginative or incapable ofcreativity - a myth that has persisted for generations. This collection hopesto shatter those stereotypes, those misconceptions and misunderstandings, and theperception that one must be neurotypical to be afforded a voice in the arts.
