Article by 25366 Anna-Michelle Shewfelt

As I am well aware in my roll as Editor of eVeritas, human interest articles of any kind are one of our most popular features. As many of you will be aware, I contact a number of individuals each week to solicit interest for featuring in an article and to provide a list of questions/writing prompts. What you may not be aware of is that the response rate for those emails averages approx ten percent (and many weeks not even that).

So, if you enjoy reading human interest articles and would like to see more of then, I need your help. And there a few ways in particular that you can do this:

1. Reach out to me to contribute. I’ll be more than happy to work with you to put an article together. (I can be reached at Anna-Michelle.Shewfelt@rmc.ca.)

2. Respond to email prompts if/when you receive them. The list of questions/writing prompts is designed to take as little or as much time as you have available to put into it.

3. Encourage your friends and classmates to respond to the emails if/when they receive them.

Remember that human interest content depends on you to provide it. If you want to see more of it, work with me to make it happen!

And if you have already responded to one of my emails, or are in the process of going back and forth with me right now to produce an article, I’d like to thank you for helping make eVeritas what it is.

    I would love to send in a human interest article or two. I attended RRMC RMC and graduated 1982. I could write some good salty dips about life in the West Coast Navy, or about my time on the BCFerries superferry, or my last years at sea in Alaska in Royal Caribbean. Some adventurous tales of the Sea.

    I as at CMR when the first class of graduates (the new “18”) stayed at CMR to earn and receive their degrees in 1971 ( I think). I have wondered how they fared in their careers. I have no idea how one would find out or even contact them, but it might be interesting if some of them could be tracked down and convinced to tell their stories.
