About this Guest Post (GP)
In her first guest post Marieke Guy summarised the eleven IWMW events she has attended. In this post she shares her top ten list of “crazy titles for sessions that facilitators [have] come up with“. This sounds like a great idea for further blog posts. If you have any ideas for other top ten lists associated with IWMW events, please get in touch.
