Hello! If you've reached this post and don't know who I am: my name's Jen [hi!] and I'm a writer and bookseller living in London. I've had my poems and short stories published in various places, and I'm also the author of 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.' I also have EEC Syndrome, which is a rare form of Ectodermal Dysplasia. A couple of months ago I was told that, because of this condition, I might lose my sight in the next fifteen years [how careless of me]. So, I'm doing a fundraising event to raise money for research centres who are looking for a cure for this, and who are also doing research into better understanding and helping out in other areas affected by EEC. My fundraising challenge: writing 100 Poems in just one weekend. [5th and 6th of November]. When I write the poems, they will be posted online over on this website.
Here's a little video where I explain everything about it.
CLICK TO DONATE [and to read a bit more about it] ETA: The donation page has now expired, but you can buy a copy of the poetry collection over here. Over £4000 has been raised so far, thank you to everyone who has donated and spread the word. xx
Thank you. Lots of love xxxxxxxxx
