Beyond The Spectrum was a pilot project connecting professional, autistic poets and authors with autistic people from age 11 upwards across the East Midlands.

The project began with a series of eight free, weekly creative writing workshops, which ended in March 2021. The workshops were for autistic writers from beginners upwards, with separate groups available for younger writers and adult writers living in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all workshops were online.
