Seeking bald or balding women with Alopecia to share their stories for an upcoming theatre/multimedia project. We are interested n interviewing a diverse group of women, (all ages and ethnicities), who have lost their hair from Alopecia, so that we may explore the psychological and emotional aspects of the condition.
The writers, who have had Alopecia for most of their life, want to challenge the medical community who has placed most of their emphasis on the physical aspect (the hair loss itself), paying little or no attention to the emotional symptoms that we with Alopecia encounter on a daily basis.
If you or someone you know with Alopecia is interested in sharing your story and being interviewed, please follow the guidelines set forth below.
All stories will remain anonymous.
Our process for submissions is as follows:
Please send an email with a brief explanation of your story along with a recent picture (that best depicts your story), through our website here.
We will then email you our list of questions to be thinking about and schedule/conduct the online Skype session.
If Skype is not an option, just let us know this in your initial email. (Skype offers a free plan, full details are available on their website. A webcam will be needed for this process.)
