We just realized that we have shared many achievements by autistic people, but no poetry at all so far, so we would like to share some great poetry by the awesome poets below (we will post more poets and poetry in the future). In general there seems to be more visual artists, so the poetry we have is really precious. In alphabetical order:
Sydney Edmond: http://www.aweinautism.org/gallery/poetry/sydney-edmond/
Marie Faverio: http://mariesmagicworld.my-style.in/mypoems.html
Gretchen Leary: https://gretchenleary.wordpress.com/category/poetry-2/
Thomas A. McKean: http://thomasamckean.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=24
Tito Mukhopadhyay: http://www.halo-soma.org/about_writings.php
On Marie’s page there is also an essay on free verse: http://mariesmagicworld.my-style.in/Free%20Verse.pdf. That’s very interesting because probably many people think there are no rules for free verse, which is obviously not the case. Excellent essay!
