InterAction needs you: share your ideas and tips

January 10, 2018

Our readers' ideas, feedback, stories and experiences are the lifeblood of our Membership magazine, InterAction – and we have two opportunities for people affected by M.E. to contribute to our next issue!

Calling all creatives: are you handy with a pencil, paintbrush or sewing needle? Do you knit kneewarmers, carve clay or freshen up furniture? Email pictures of your crafts and we’ll feature our favourites in InterAction! Unfortunately we can only accept high-resolution images, so please use all the megapixels your camera can muster, and don’t resize it before you send it. If the file is too large for you to send by email, try using WeTransfer or a similar free filesharing website. Don’t be shy - our ‘creative corner’ is waiting for you!

Are you a parent of a child with M.E, or a young person with recent experience of the education system? Do you have any tips to share with other families on how to cope with studying and exams? For example, how to move from the classroom to home schooling, or reintegrate into the school timetable after long-term absence? Perhaps you’ve had good experiences with your child’s school - what did they do that helped? And if you’re a young person doing A-levels or a Degree, can you share any advice on how to manage the pressures of higher education? Let us know and we’ll include a selection of your responses in the next issue of the magazine.
