I wrote an essay 'The public service customer:Misdirection, Manipulation and Myth?...I have never won anything in my life. My school is really making a big deal of it....feel slightly embarrassed by the fuss but to be honest it couldnt have come at a better time!!! So so so happy
It was lovely to have this pop up in my e-mail box!! Yes it was few years ago now but it was one of the happiest letters i received saying I had won as I was beginning to doubt my writing abilities. Alas I am not in a lectureship :-( After finishing my PhD I spent 18 months looking for work until I got a temp. part time job at Manchester university as a research associate designing a website for the Online Centre for Ethnic Politics. So after 9 years training to be an academic/researcher/lecturer i end up being a web designer :-( . I am terrified of being out of work again and so am trying to cast my net wide as i work to help get more work next year. It's a tough old game.
Anyway if you really want to see the Battles essay it is here:
I won a VIP weekend at the battles festival and it was great!
Keep your peckers up!!!
