FUNDRAISING AUCTION

Many thanks to Phil Jones for offering this exciting opportunity to raise funds for The BADth Charity.

We welcome bids starting at £60. Please send these to badthcharity@outlook.com  

Closing date is 1st March 2018.

Feedback on draft dramatherapy articles, chapters or book proposals from Professor Phil Jones for four individuals.

Written feedback and a 45 minute discussion for each individual, face to face, by phone or Skype on a draft article, chapter or book proposal concerning dramatherapy. A maximum of 5,000 words would be the norm, but drafts of less are absolutely fine. The aim of this offer is to support the development of scholarship and writing in the field. It is open to individuals who have not written about the subject before and to those who have experience, but would welcome an outside perspective. Prior to the feedback and discussion we would have a phone or Skype conversation about the work to be submitted, to be clear on the agreed task, the intended publication (e.g. which journal or publisher), and areas such as ethics and confidentiality in relation to the content of the material.
