MK and I are applying for a grant to upgrade and professionalise the web site. We run it as a labour of love, and, although we have gratefully received sponsorship in the past to cover web hosting and maintenance, it costs us in time and money to keep it going, and we are both increasingly busy with freelance work, which is what keeps a roof over our respective heads. We rely on the good will of guest reviewers and bloggers to contribute without reward, or in exchange for a review copy of a graphic novel, and we would like to remedy this and pay community members for generating copy.
As part of the application we need to demonstrate the importance of the website, so we need your words.
How has Graphic Medicine contributed to your understanding/enjoyment/interest of all things comics and medicine?
Please send one or two quotable lines, ASAP, to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t think too hard, just say what you feel.
