I’M COLLECTING PERSONAL ESSAYS FOR A BOOK ABOUT OVERCOMING BODY IMAGE ISSUES AND MAKING PEACE WITH OUR BODIES. ESSAYS SHOULD DETAIL YOUR STRUGGLES WITH BODY IMAGE AND THE WAYS YOU HAVE FOUND PEACE AND WILL RANGE FROM 500 TO 2500 WORDS. You are welcome to write anonymously if you prefer. Please note that in the form below.
Keep in mind that once you submit the essay, I will work with you to edit the essay if necessary for publication in the book. Unfortunately, because of the costs of self-publishing, I am unable to pay contributors; I will, however, provide you with a free copy of the book. A portion of proceeds will benefit nonprofit eating disorder and body image organizations.
The book will also include interviews with experts working to promote healthy body image. If you are interested in being profiled, please fill out the form below with information about the work you do in the “essay draft” section.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CONTRIBUTING, PLEASE COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW WITH A SHORT DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ESSAY in the “essay draft” section. ESSAY DRAFTS WILL BE DUE BY NOVEMBER 30.
