Hola! Writer Abroad is recovering not only from her sister’s 10-day visit but also from her first Spanish rock concert. How the heck she managed to confuse an intimate flamenco concert with one of the biggest rock events of the year in Spain is another matter entirely, olé!
Anyhow. Without further delay, another international round-up is here.
Writer Abroad has discovered a great new site called EuroWriter for those who want to get published in Europe.
Since Writer Abroad hasn’t linked to herself lately, here’s a post she wrote for one of her blogging clients on great expat books not to miss. She’s a bit biased, so of course has included a few Writer Abroad-featured writers on the list.
Speaking of Writer Abroad-featured writers, Philip Graham was interviewed by John Warner over at The Morning News and Writer Abroad was pleased to learn that she is not alone in her book-hugging habits. In addition, Philip inspires with tales of his first New Yorker piece, published when he was only 28.
For writers in Geneva, Switzerland, the Geneva Writers' Group offers workshops, conferences, and support groups for international writers. Writer Abroad wishes Zurich was a little closer to Geneva. Or that Swiss trains would go high-speed.
In other news, Writer Abroad is completing her book proposal for Hausfrau: The Memoir, thanks to an online MediaBistro class taught by Random House editor Jill Schwartzman. Writer Abroad has taken several online MediaBistro classes and highly recommends them to other writers who are New York City challenged.
Finally, Writer Abroad is tired of winter. Spring is taking longer than usual to arrive here in Europe and Writer Abroad spent the weekend wearing her ski jacket. Again. Even when surrounded by palm trees in Barcelona.
As a reminder, any writer wishing to become a part of the Writer Abroad-featured family is welcome to contact Writer Abroad. Offers of Lucky Charms or Jif Peanut butter are also encouraged, along with ideas for guest posts.
