As part of our Poetry Unravelled project, we invited three poets – Victoria McNulty, Beth McDonough and Craig Houston – to join project-lead Julie McNeil for conversation and readings around their experiences of dyslexia and neurodiversity.
The podcast discussion was fascinating as the poets talked about their own first experiences of poetry in school and went on to the challenges raised by educational settings, especially around identifying a lack of neurodiversity and dyslexia-friendly poetry resources available for individuals and schools.
We also recorded poems reflecting on these themes, showcasing the transformative power of poetry, whether listening, reading, or creating. The resources from the project will be made available on our website soon. For more information, please contact project and learning coordinator Samuel Tongue.
