October Call for Submissions

October is ADHD Awareness Month!

Neurodiversified is our Medium publication, and we are inviting writers to submit their stories about ADHD, neurodiversity, mental health, psychology, and parenting.

In true ADHD form, we are sharing our October call for submissions 11 days into October… but hey, better late than never is sort of an ADHD motto.

Our October writing prompt:

What do you wish someone had told you about ADHD when you, or your child, were first diagnosed?

Writers are welcome to submit other related drafts, provided they follow our submission guidelines.

In particular, we are looking for:

  • Stories about your journey to discovering your divergent brain, or being diagnosed — self-diagnosis is 100% valid.
  • Things you’ve learned about ADHD along the way.
  • Learning about your child’s neurodivergence, your child being diagnosed with ADHD, and other parenting stories.

Please note: if you are a neurotypical parent to a neurodivergent child, please do not centre yourself in the story. The story should focus on supporting your child, celebrating their unique qualities, and advocating for your child.

Please browse through our ADHD stories to get a feel for what we are looking for, and to ensure you are writing something fresh and not submitting subject matter we’ve already published extensively.

Neurodiversified writes from a Neurodiversity-centred approach (hence the name). If you’re not sure what this means, please read this piece prior to submitting:

Please ensure you have reviewed our submission guidelines prior to submitting:
