WI Life has a new editor, Sarah Drew Jones, whose mission in 2017 is to celebrate the WI.

To help us achieve this aim and to let you know what we’re looking for editorially, we’ve produced a Story Suggestion Form (attached) and would be grateful if you could forward it to all of your members so they can download it and use it to contact us.

Also, below are 3 stories we’re currently working on – can anyone help?

The Friendship Issue

We’re planning a series of features about different aspects of friendship – please consider the ideas below and see if one of them resonates with you. If so, get in touch.

It happened to me

We want to hear about a defining moment in your career. Maybe you’re retired now, but in your time at work you had some nail biting moments where you were able to make a difference – or make people laugh or feel special? We know many members have had colourful careers. Tell us about your pivotal moment – perhaps something that would surprise others…

You joined the WI?!

If you’re under 35 and your friends raised an eyebrow at your joining the WI, you’re not alone. But, what do they know? We’d like to interview members who are juggling their work/family/social life and find time to thrive in the WI. Maybe you set up a WI at 20, or perhaps it brings something to your life you just don’t get anywhere else. If this sounds like you please get in touch, send us a photo and a brief description of your WI involvement.
