***Update 4/12/2011 - Morpheme Conference postponed to the Fall 2011***
As May 6th gets closer I wanted to remind you there are only a few slots left for our inaugural conference on New Media for Palliative Professionals. If you need a refresher I included information from a previous post on the conference. We hope to see some of you there for a fun weekend in Birmingham.
Sign up soon before the last slots are taken!
From the previous post
I am very excited to announce the first ever Morpheme Conference May 6-8th, 2011 to help palliative professionals from any discipline work with new media and creative writing. This project got started back in the Fall of 2010 at the AAHPM Board Meeting when Amos Bailey approached me to talk blogging. We began discussing his experiences writing on his blog about gardening and my work with Pallimed. Amos had been thinking about a small workshop hosted in Birmingham, and I eagerly signed on given our aligned values for getting our field proficient in social media and blogs.
So if you are interested in blogging and want to come join us for a beautiful May weekend in Birmingham! We would love to see you. The cost for the whole weekend is $400, making it probably sub $1000 if you include hotel and travel. We are hosting dinner Friday and Saturday night, and are limiting enrollment to 12 to enable good small group feedback.
Check out our blog (naturally) for the conference to see why we chose the name 'morpheme' and learn more as we highlight good blogs in the next few months leading up to the conference. If we have a good turnout we will likely do this again in the Fall. Help build the network of palliative care bloggers and have a good time learning a new skill.
