Asemic Writing

Asemic Magazine explains the concept of Asemic Writing.

It looks like writing, but we can't quite read it.

I call works like this “asemic writing”.

Asemic writing seems to be a gigantic, unexplored territory.

Asemic writing has been made by poets, writers, painters, calligraphers, children, and scribblers, all around the world. Most people make asemic writing at some time, possibly when testing a new pen.

Educators talk about children going through distinct stages of “mock letters”, “pseudowriting” and so on, when they’re learning to write. Many of us made asemic writing before we were able to write words.
