I saw this call out from a journalist and thought it might be perfect for one of you.
Marie Claire are looking for case studies aged 20-39 for a new Marie Claire feature called ‘You’d never guess that’, which features ordinary women who have extraordinary stories.
This is the brief:
In particular I am looking for the following: women who have unusual jobs, who have survived a major illness/operation, have gone through a strange / unusual life experience or have done something kind for another person.
Women must be aged 20 - 39 and based close to, or in, the following cities - BRIGHTON, DUBLIN, CARDIFF, MANCHESTER and GLASGOW - and be willing to have a short phone interview as well as attending a photo shoot.
This feature is for print & online. Here is an example of the kind of things I am looking for: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/blogs/548995/you-d-never-guess-that.html
Please send me a synopsis of your story as well as recent photographs.
If you think your story might fit the brief or you know someone else who has an extraordinary story, email Natasha Eve Wynarczyk with a synopsis and some images at firstname.lastname@example.org
