Take a look at Charlie's short article on how she became published!
I was writing an assignment in my second year which included a reflection about a time where I was ageist. It really made me stop and think about my actions in everyday life in particular how someone could show ageist discrimination without intending it to be that way.
After it was marked I got an email form a very supportive lecturer, Catharine Jenkins, asking and encouraging me to send it off to a journal to see if it could be published. I really didn’t think it would even be considered as I was convinced nobody would ever want to read anything that had written but I was inspired by her enthusiasm and thought it would be worth a shot while help was being offered.
