Corpus has had another great year, publishing 127 posts on a wide variety of health-related topics by a wide variety of writers. Recently we also passed 100,000 reads of articles on the site since we launched Corpus in May 2016. The total number of articles we’ve published so far is over 350.
Corpus is now taking a lengthy break over summer. Posts on the site will resume on an intermittent basis from March 2019. Due to other commitments and a lack of funding, we will be unable to keep up the pace of publishing three articles a week.
The website will stay online indefinitely so you can dip back into articles you enjoyed or haven’t read yet. Just use the search and category boxes to find something of interest.
Many thanks again to all those who have contributed such thoughtful pieces over the past three years. We can’t sign off without a special thank you to our unsung hero Doug Lilly who has managed the design and technical side of the site since its inception (even though it made him intolerably grumpy at times as he fought off the spammers and hackers).
Here’s a small selection of 2018’s most popular posts to dip back into:
- Clive James: “I am here now” by Sue Wootton (12 March)

Finally thank you to all our readers and for the positive feedback that many of you provided which helped sustain our efforts.
