Job Post and AMWA Announcement

First, the job post:

Now, this is something that just came out in AMWA's e-newsletter that you may be able to contribute to, if you like:

In conjunction with our Creative Readings session at the 2008 Annual Conference, we’re hoping to gather and publish “101 Ways to Know You’re a Medical Writer.” We’re inviting all members to contribute to this effort, whether they are attending the conference or not. If you plan to participate in our Creative Readings session, either by reading a creative work or by being in the audience, you can bring your ideas with you—Wednesday evening, October 22. Or, you can e-mail them to Donna Miceli ( before the conference. We will share some of them during the creative readings session and, hopefully, publish them in some form afterwards. To get your creative juices flowing, here are some contributions that we’ve already received:

“You know you’re a medical writer when…

…your friends and family members start calling you for medical advice.”

…you sneeze into the crook of your elbow.”

…a medical abbreviations Web site is first on your favorites list.”
