Elizabeth Rose Arifien (Move Beyond Words) ADHD & Dyslexia

When I was 20 I read ‘The Power Of Now’ which had a dramatic effect on me and my life choices. It inspired me to move to London from my village in Derbyshire and dream big. I recently read ‘The Surrender Experiment’ by Micheal A Singer which was filled with rich lessons and I would love to read it again but I have lent it to someone, and cannot remember who… if you’re reading this can you send it back ;).


Steve Chapman (aka stevexoh) Dyslexia, borderline ASD

I quite like the word Spong. It’s not in the dictionary but colloquially it means a photoshopped image of a face that has been manipulated to make the main features disproportionately bigger (the opposite of Gnops which is to make the features disproportionately smaller). I just like the sound of the word Spong rather than that definition. I created a fake poster for a music festival called Spongfest and put them all over London and my online outsider art gallery is called The Spongleheim. ( Both of those things were successful, so to me it is a magical word.
