MARINA MIYAZAKI

Marina is a writer from Londrina/PR, she discovered dyslexia as an adult, after her children came along. They ended up bringing her dyslexia to the surface, when children pointed out their differences. She always wrote, but it took her a while to get her texts out of the drawer. She enjoys writing for children and giving visibility to issues involving emotional and social vulnerability.

DYSLEXICATING

Dislexicando (2015) is a children's book written with common misspellings made by people with dyslexia. In other words, a book with Portuguese “mistakes”. It is the report of a girl who questions the way specialists treat children with dyslexia. The book was illustrated by Tony de Marco, a typedesigner who also has dyslexia.

THE FEAR OF A TAUGHT

"Fear is to lose or to understand?", a phrase in the epigraph of the book "The fear of the stuck tail" (Ed. Scipione), by Marina Miyazaki, brings an essential question when you think about a full education, that trains the citizens to be able to dialogue with society and themselves. Losing a fear can mean a victory over it, but understanding it may be the most important thing, because it demands a comprehension of something that, by being different, creates doubts and can paralyze. The illustrations by Gilmar Machado (@cartunista_das_cavernas) contribute decisively so the questions proposed by the text can gain new and multiple dimensions. After all, as the author says, her writing realizes itself "as an aid to dyslexia, puting crooked, right, wrong, invented and disconnected words (the editor must figure it out) in texts for children that transform into art in the hands of the illustrator, the animators and editors.

SENTIMENTARY

Coming up from the text " Palavras, Perfumes e Sentimentos" (Words, Perfumes and Feelings), in which the author deals with words in a playful and distinguished manner, there is workshop and the animation short movie "Sentimentário", awarded in many cinema festivals and produced and directed by graduated students from the Cinema course from Federal University of Pelotas.

The great teaching is found in bringing to discussion that the sense of vocables is way larger than the one found in the tradicional dictionary. The emotional value of each of them, both for children and as an emotional memory from adults, can't be ignored or

erased. It needs to be constantly valued.

Installing a personal feelings dictionary is an essential poetic step, especially to establish a creative and sensible knowledge about the world.

by herself

I didn't even know I had dyslexia before.

After I found out and admitted it, I still made a blog and profiles on social networks anonymously. Everything to be free, to be able to write the way and about what I wanted.

After overcoming this phase, I manage to publish Dyslexicando, a book with “errors” without corrections, criticizing and deconstructing everything that has been said to date about dyslexia.

It was liberating! Currently, I relate reasonably well with my dyslexia, I learned to use it to my advantage.
