2015 marks the 10 year anniversary of the removal of anonymity for sperm, egg and embryo donors in the UK.
To mark the occasion, we will launch a sequel to our book ‘Letters To My Donor’, working title ‘Donation Through the Years’.
We’re looking for stories and quotes from donor-conceived, parents, donors and professionals addressing egg, sperm and embryo donation from all angles. What made you become a donor? How has being donor-conceived impacted on your life? What is the most memorable donor you have ever worked with? What would you ask the donor if you met? If you had the chance, what would you tell the donor who helped conceive your child?
We need pieces of 100 words, 500 words or 750 words. There won’t be identifying pictures in the book and no full names.
You can remain anonymous in the book if you prefer but we would need to know your name. If you are interested and would like to be part of this project please contact Pip Morris at the National Gamete Donation Trust on 0845 226 9193 for more information or send in your contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org by 14th September 2015.
We can’t guarantee publication but will let you know as soon as possible after the deadline.
