Many thanks to all those who offered suggestions for a slogan to accompany the launch of my new book: Social Anxiety Revealed.
I decided I wasn’t the best person to judge this contest. I think when you don’t live in a country where English is spoken, sometimes words don’t ring in quite the same way, and slogans are all about that tinkling in the ears.
So I chose a judge – Jean Davison. Jean probably caught social anxiety herself as a teenager, although she wasn’t diagnosed with it (unsurprisingly, as social anxiety wasn’t known in those days). Instead, she was diagnosed with something she didn’t have, as told in her memoir, The Dark Threads. Thank you, Jean.
The winner of the competition is Catherine Kullmann with the slogan:
We need to talk about Social Anxiety
Jean felt (and I agree) that this slogan gets the message across most clearly.
Congratulations, Catherine! I’ll be catapulting a signed copy of Neither Here Nor There over to you as soon as I know where to direct it.
