Cfp: New and Unusual Ways of Writing Lives


I am in the process of putting together a proposed book titled New and Unusual Ways of Writing Lives. This is an edited collection that aims at being a “how to” book for students and teachers and interested practitioners, and a guide for use in higher education.

Currently I am seeking a number of academics and professional practioners in the field who might like to send me an abstract for consideration for inclusion in the book.
