The Writers for Women’s Rights Programme (WWRP)

I’m posting this on behalf of WW (Wonderful Wife, Wonder Womyn, or Whipping Witch – depending on circumstances :-))– it’s a great opportunity for any young women who want to explore ways of getting their voice heard. This is the sixth workshop and - amongst other things - they published a book called "Young Women Speak Out!" last year.
Are you a young woman between the ages of 18 to 32? Are you interested in what's happening around you? Do you have a passion for writing? Do you want your voice heard in the mass media? Have you been thinking of getting involved in activism but not sure where to start?

It's organised by AWAM, and you can see more about the programme on their website. Or you can download information on how to apply here. Check it out!

The workshop is from 13-16 November, but you need to apply before the 30th September.

I want this guy's job!

Jan Chipchase has this very interesting blog - most of the entries are a photo or two with a short comment. They're always odd things that he's spotted - such as this mobile phone polishing service in Kabul

and car wheel protectors (against dog-pee?) in Beijing

There are photos from all around (mostly) Asia which he has taken while doing his job which is
conduct[ing] exploratory human behavioural field research at Nokia Research Center... [and he specialises in] taking teams of concept/industrial designers, psychologists, usability experts, sociologists, and ethnographers into the field and, after a fair bit of work, getting them home safely.

My blog has been graded

blog readability test
Well, given that I am doing a PhD, but that I do want what I write to be readable and not too jargony, I don’t know if this is good or bad…

Anyway, it’s good for all audiences…

Hmm… so my blog is basically rated for kids?

The Blog-O-Cuss Meter - Do you cuss a lot in your blog or website?

jeez… what a wussy blog is my blog…

Do you talk too much in your blog?

This is just getting stupid – it says “On average, your blog posts are around 2 words in length. This is 100 percent shorter than other bloggers who took this test.” – there must be something wrong with the way it looks at my site…
