Pittverse Magazine is a quarterly publication written exclusively by adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. This publication aims to increase inclusion and broaden the general understanding of autism for potential employers, and society, through a demonstration of each writer’s individual skills and talents. Pittverse Magazine simultaneously fosters creativity, teamwork, responsibility, and a sense of purpose that are imperative for success in any environment.
Evolution of the Magazine
Over the past several years, a tiny newsletter became a full-fledged magazine. With the increase in participants came other changes than just a higher page count. Pittverse Magazine has evolved from issue to issue, on the inside and out. We have welcomed new staff, said goodbye to writers and staff as they depart for other opportunities, and have grown as a group of people on a mission to produce one of the best magazines around. At each stage, the writing staff have made important decisions, including revamping the magazine cover, connecting with others during meetings and social events, and had a say in nearly every aspect of the magazine.
Why we do what we do!
This magazine has given many individuals the opportunity to learn employment skills, connect and socialize with others, and evolve as an individual. There are many stories to be told, ranging from interviews with members of the community, opinion pieces on all subjects, life stories, original artwork and photography, one-of-a-kind fictional stories crafted by our talented writers, and so much more. We do what we do to make sure that these adults on the autism spectrum are heard and that they have an opportunity to grow, just like any other person should have.
