Dysbooks aims to help dyslexics connect with literacy. It is partly a book review and discussion website that fosters an environment where people are not judged based on their spelling or grammar. It also produces information on writing and dyslexic authors to act as an inspiration to other dyslexics, and those supporting them.
DYSPLA - the new word for dyslexic storymakers, the word that stands up for the untold stories you are yet to write and develops the stories you have written, - DYSPLA - the word that encourages you to dream, turning one script at a time into a new culture shifting conversation that changes lives. Putting dyslexics and their work into the public sphere; proving that if you can write it we can make it. Making you the contender!
Rebelling Against Spelling Press (RASP) was founded in 2007 to make books by dyslexics rather than about them.
Since our formation in 2007, we have collaborated with dyslexic editors, writers, poets, performers and critics to explore and examine the relationship between dyslexia and authorship.
Through literature we hope to promote an awareness of dyslexia as a difference.
