We want your stories for Vasectomy Week at Dads & Families
We want your vasectomy stories, anecdotes, essays, insights for the Dads & Families section. Could be your friends’ or family members’ stories. Could be anything. I want to inaugurate a vasectomy week; I wanna do what Bob Barker did for LA-based pets for dads; I wanna run great pieces on the discussions that went down between spouses, the thought process of deciding on it, the deliberations, the process itself, the consequences of it, reversals, about those who changed their minds, about vasectomies gone wrong, about overcoming the fear, about anything to do with the idea of vasectomies.
In the spirit of personal disclosure, my wife got an IUD that is set to expire, so I have a personal interest in your accounts that transcend those of just an editor.
Let your writer dad friends know. Don’t be intimidated by length–of what you’re writing! I’ll take a paragraph. I’ll take a memoir (in part). It won’t take long, it’s a snap!
We’re shooting for the first week of January to have all content. We’ve got permission to supplement your personal narratives with clinical advice from the nation’s preeminent vasectomy specialist, Dr. Harry Fisch, who has said, “The penis is the dipstick of the body’s health.”
Email your essays, pitches, queries to Dads & Families editor firstname.lastname@example.org.
