Is your family coming to terms with self-injury? Would you be willing to share your story in That’s Life magazine?
Christina is writing an article about self-injury, and would ideally like to talk to a mother who found out her child was self-injurying. Christina would be especially interested in talking with sons or daughters who had been hurting themselves since primary school, but is open to hearing different stories from people who have self-harmed from a young age.
If you are interested in talking to Christina, and appearing in That’s Life magazine, and you’re in the UK, talk the idea over with your family and then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of ‘Christina That’s Life’ and I will pass your details on.
Please only include your names (mother and child), your ages and your general location (town or city).
Christina means to write a sensitive feature article, and you can be in control of how your story is presented, as Christina intends to work closely with you to make sure you’re happy about the article. There is an opportunity to earn a considerable fee if your story is published, and if you’re willing to have photographs published you would earn more money, but it’s your choice, you don’t have to share more than you want.
Talking about your family in a national magazine is a big step, so you should talk it over with your whole family before deciding. You should decide if you’re happy to have your surname published and if you’re happy to share family photos, it’s all up to you.
If you’re interested in emailing Christina to ask any questions (you can pull out at any time) please email me on email@example.com and I will pass your details on directly.
