Emma Claire Sweeney is proud and honored to announce her involvement with Square Peg Stories, an anthology of works written during a series of workshops for authors with Autistic Spectrum Condition. Emma will be serving as a workshop leader.
Square Peg Stories is an exciting opportunity for eight participants with Autistic Spectrum Condition to attend creative writing workshops and be mentored by industry leaders. Over the course of the project each participant will write a short story for inclusion in an anthology with a forward written by British novelist David Mitchell.
Between November 2016 and February 2017, participants will take part in six creative writing workshops and two one-to-one mentoring days led by published authors. Each participant will be assigned a mentor, and in between workshops will draft a piece of short fiction with support from their mentor. At the end of the project, participants’ short stories will be published in an anthology.
