VSS PATIENTS NEEDED
Here is a message from Dave Marques
He can be reached via email email@example.com
I'm a master's student at Columbia Journalism School and for my capstone project (our equivalent of a thesis) I'm writing a ~5000 word magazine feature on visual snow. It will largely be a personal narrative, but substantially interspersed with interview and research material. I myself have visual snow syndrome (since June 2019) and would love to speak with others about their experiences with VSS - symptoms, adaptation strategies, etc.
If you feel comfortable sharing your story, I would love to hear from you! There is very little coverage of VSS in the press and I hope to bring the condition to the wider public's attention.
(Two things to note up front: (1) I am planning to pitch the piece to a mainstream media outlet once it's complete; (2) I will need to use your first and last names in the article. I unfortunately cannot use pseudonyms, initials, first name only, or anonymous attribution).
If you're interested, send me a PM and we can set up a time to talk. Zoom is preferable, but a phone call is fine as well. (If you are in New York City, meeting in-person outdoors is also an option but definitely not an expectation!).
