Hey everyone, thanks for your patience while AEM was down. I was regrouping, and needed to change things a bit. Rest assured, AEM is still here and stronger than ever. I also look forward to sharing new, exciting developments that have taken place, and that will take place in the near future.
On that note, 2012 looks promising for AEM and my work as an investigative journalist. I also have a great announcement to make - it just happened this week. Not only do I have a literary agent who is actively shopping my book to publishers, but Kathy Horn is now my publicist! This means that I have a team of people helping me raise further awareness about the student lending crisis. That also means the call for change will only get louder. (If you would like to interview me (radio, TV, etc.), please contact her for details. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her twitter handle is @roadrunnertalen).
2012 will be a better year for all of us - at least that is my goal. We've all come a long way, and I am amazed at the community of student loan debtors. Each and everyone of you own this cause and have become activists. It is comforting to know that I am not on the battlefield alone. All of you are so supportive of one another and me. I know that many of you find comfort in these groups, and I appreciate hearing that feedback. Without your involvement, they would not be thriving, so please allow me to express my gratitude for your continued commitment to the cause. Indeed, the fight continues, and I am refreshed and eager to push for change more than ever!
Finally, you can read more of my work at the following outlets:
The Loop 21
-Incidentally, my latest piece there is entitled, "Why America is Losing the War on Poverty"
My work will be appearing in more outlets soon, so stay tuned for those announcements!
* [UPDATE 1/20/2012]*
I'm pleased to announce that I will be a contributing writer for Marcello Rollando's website, The Reasonable Voice. I look forward to working with Marcello this coming year!
