We are always trying to think of new ways to get members more involved in our work. It is important to us that all of our voices are heard and that we are acting on the issues that our members care about.
Membership News magazine is a place where members can share their own lived experience to help others and find out more about the growing movement for better mental health. Now we’d like to invite a member to join us as guest editor and help shape the content and themes we talk about in our Spring magazine, published in April.
As guest editor you will work with our superb editorial team to choose topics that are important to you and share your ideas for how your chosen content could look and feel on the printed page. Is there a mental health issue that you’d like to shine a spotlight on? Or a mental health treatment that you think other members would be interested to learn more about?
If this sounds like an exciting opportunity you’d like to participate in, please send us a short paragraph via email telling us a little bit about yourself and what sorts of stories you might like to feature in Membership News. You don’t need any previous experience of publishing or writing for a magazine, just a desire to spread the word and support better mental health.
We want to ensure you have as much time as possible to work on your content with our team, so we need to receive your email by 12pm on Monday, 15 February. Unfortunately we can only choose one guest editor on this occasion but we will reply to everybody who contacts us to let you know if your submission has been successful – and we hope this is an opportunity we can offer out again in future issues of Membership News.
Please email your paragraph to: [email protected] before 12 pm on Monday, 15 February and include ‘Guest Editor’ in the subject line.
