What will your contribution be?

This year World Childless Week runs from 13th to 19th September & I’m very proud to continue to be an Ambassador. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating our community & working together to ensure that no-one feels alone. In addition to the daily topics where you can submit a contribution, there’s a range of webinars & talks in the planning stage. If you’re not familiar with WCW, each day focuses on a different topic & this year there are a couple of new subjects which I’m sure will stimulate a range of different articles & debate. And WCW only works if as many of you as possible submit a contribution (which can be anonymous) so I’d really encourage you to take time considering the topics & whether you feel that you can contribute. You can find out more & how to submit an article here. I invite you to explore your creativity & see where it leads If you follow my blog you’ll know how much I believe in the support which creativity provides in our healing process. And to quote ‘WCW welcomes submissions of all descriptions: written word, poem, song, dance, painting, sculpture, photography etc.’ So I’d really like to encourage you to pick one or more of the daily topics & explore your creativity in whatever way calls to you. Perhaps you’ll submit your results to WCW & perhaps you won’t, but either way you’ll learn something & as Elizabeth Gilbert says in Big Magic; ‘the merits … Read more
