THESIS PROJECT: OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK AND WRITING

I am a graduate student in Boston, and for my thesis project I am putting together a book of artwork and writing inspired by people�s battle with and/or recovery from eating disorders. I will be including several pieces myself that I have written throughout my 12 year battle with anorexia and bulimia. Contributors may remain nameless if they wish. I am unable to pay for contributions, but will supply all who would like one with a copy of the finished book. (This book will not actually be published or available to the general public; it will be seen by my thesis committee, and will then be bound and placed in my college�s library.) This is a great opportunity to see your work in print and to see the contributions of others who have gone through a similar experience.
