Here’s where Writer Abroad has been finding information and inspiration over the last couple weeks:
Beautiful essay by Jennifer Berney in Literary Mama about moving in an attempt to find the right place. Writer Abroad recently moved as well, and can relate to the essay’s non-conclusion. Is there ever a location that’s perfect? What do you think?
A new book, Windows on the World, by Matteo Pericoli, features the views of fifty writers around the world along with short essays about what the writer sees. Would make a great Christmas gift.
Feeling nostalgic about her former adopted country, Writer Abroad couldn’t help but fall in love with the photography of Ursula Sprecher and Andi Cortellini, who captured Swiss social clubs in all of their glory. From the Pigeon Fanciers’ Club to the Knitting Club, these photographs tell one of the best stories of the Swiss people Writer Abroad has seen for a long time. She wonders what an American version would look like.
Finally, for those interested in traditional versus self-publishing, Tucker Max has given writers a new option: Only using traditional publishers for what they do best: distribution. Attention, Authors: I Tripled My Royalties, and You Can Too.
