Writing workshops, calls for submissions, and working abroad

Since coming abroad, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how to get a job overseas. I’d say more on this here, but Greg Christensen, who recently moved back to the U.S. after working in Switzerland as a copywriter, has already written a fantastic (and free) eBook called “Makin’ Ads Abroad.” It’s definitely written for those who are career-focused and ad-centric, but it’s a great resource to look through for anyone considering moving abroad.

The fiction portion of the Zurich Writers Workshop is almost full but there are still places available in the memoir/creative non-fiction section. The workshop takes place May 6-8. Registration closes in April.

If you're on the other side on the pond, from March 31-April 18, Susan Tiberghien, founder of the Geneva Writers’ Group, will be giving workshops in Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. Schedule and titles are on her website.

The Bellevue Literary Review is looking for creative nonfiction. For more information visit www.BLReview.org for guidelines.

The International Women's Writing Guild will hold their summer conference at Yale University from June 24-July 1.

Finally, Writer Abroad would like to invite anyone with writing news to leave a comment and a link. And now, sadly, she has to go because her Swiss neighbor has insisted that she read the user manual (in her choice of German or French) for the new communal dryer. The dryer just arrived yesterday, but she's already been given a personal tour of every part that must be cleaned after each use.

  1. The biggest challenge with working abroad - no matter what the profession - is adapting to the local culture and customs. I should know. I went through that already when I was applying for work at some foreign umbrella companies.
