Discussion in 'General ME/CFS News' started by AndyPR, Jul 7, 2017.
Never heard of Lorna Stephenson before, but she gets my vote from now on. Brilliantly written article, which does nothing other than tell the truth - it doesn't need do any more than that.
The last line says a lot ...
Great article well deserving of comments.
Great to see an article in a Bristol publication criticising Crawley. I hope it has a big impact. Well done to the author.
Pleased this is going down well. I missed this thread and started a different one but don't know how to delete that one.
Lorna was quite thorough. She spent a couple of hours with David Tuller. She also seems to have contacted @Jonathan Edwards . She interviewed me via email because I was feeling too ill to talk.
As far as I'm aware she doesn't have an iron in the fire. When I wrote about children with ME for the Bristol Cable a few months ago I was given a really tight word count. She picked up that the story was much bigger and pulled that thread.
Actually much better to have a non pwme write it. We'd do some things differently but it would read as biased.
Do you think she might be open to covering other ME related things (that are not in the Bristol area)?
Probably not for the Bristol Cable. I think they always look for a Bristol angle but I don't know if she writes in other places as well. I'd have thought anyone who's done the leg work of learning the context could write another article more easily.
Think this is same Lorna Stephenson:
"Red Pepper is a bi-monthly magazine and website of left politics and culture. We’re a socialist publication drawing on feminist, green and libertarian politics. We seek to be a space for debate on the left, a resource for movements for social justice, and a home for open-minded anti-capitalists."
Lots for her to explore further then..
- Jen Brea's TED Talk
- The Women's Party's manifesto regarding MUS
- Connections between WPD, research and the insurance business
Good to see this. Thanks.
