At the Dyslexia Initiative we are dedicated to expression through art.

Beginning in 2018, starting in McKinney, Texas the Dyslexia Art Show was launched.

It's third year, and the first virtual version of the event, occurred in October, 2020.

This page is under construction.  Please stay tuned for more information.


Dyslexia & Art

Art, in all its forms, is important in all areas of life, and has been proven to increase creativity, improve academic performance, increase motor skills, enhance visual learning, and boost higher decision-making skills. 

And, while having dyslexia does not automatically mean you will excel in art and be creative, a large percent of dyslexics tend to lean on the creative side.


Call for Submission

We are hoping to share poems that reflect the full landscape of dyslexic people creating vital poetry—that means poems that are formal, poems that are not formal, poems written in languages that are not English, poems that stem from academia and poems that don’t. The door is open for those pieces that beg for breath. 

The is open to all with dyslexia. The Dyslexia Initiative reserves the right to refuse any submission that it deems unacceptable.
