Writers! Visit Aimee's new blog!
September 24, 2009Dear Friends,
First news, I've just launched a new blog at www.aimeeliu.net
which I'm calling
writing NOW & THEN: entries from an author's life
My mission is to excavate and extract entries from old journals that still resonate and perhaps even offer wisdom or insight into the writing life today. Please visit and let me know what you think!
Next news, I just received the request below for participants in a PhD study about the impact of reading eating disorder memoirs. If you would like to participate, you'll need to CUT & PASTE this link into your browser:
From: Jodie Allen, Department of Sociology, University of Cambridge
I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge conducting research on people's experiences of reading eating disorder memoirs. Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, recruiting participants has been difficult. As a personal fan of "Gaining" and your newsletter, I thought I would email you to ask for your help. I wondered if it would be at all possible for you to include a line or two about the study in your newsletter, or on one of your blogs. The study is approved by the University of Cambridge Ethics Committee, and involves a short (15-20) minute online survey. Participants are also invited (at the end of the survey) to participate in a interview to share their experiences in more detail. I have included the link so that you can view the study.
That's it for now.
