Dear Dyslexia: The Postcard Project is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of the dyslexic experience. The project invites dyslexics of all ages — from students to professionals — to depict their relationship with dyslexia on postcards using words and images. The goal is to activate a global community around the unique strengths and perspectives that dyslexia offers — what we call “hyper-abilities.”
Dear Dyslexia was launched locally in San Francisco in 2022 as part of an exhibit featuring artwork by high-profile dyslexics. The postcards were all created by dyslexic individuals in response to a simple prompt: What is dyslexia to you?
The contributions kept coming long after the exhibit ended. Now, more than 500 postcards from all over the world can be found in our online gallery.
The postcards will be featured in an upcoming exhibit coinciding with Dyslexia Awareness Month (October 2023) as a way to inspire and educate the next generation of dyslexic thinkers.
How to Participate
1. Download the postcard template.
2. Print out the template on card stock or paper.

Important: In order to have your artwork considered for display in the physical exhibit in October, we must receive your postcard by Oct 1.

Do I need to be a student or a kid to participate in the project?
No! Dyslexics of all ages can contribute to the project.
We prefer to receive the originals, but we’ll accept digital copies as well! We’ll make sure to print and incorporate them into our exhibition.
