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.

The dryer just arrived yesterday, but she's already been given a personal tour of every part that must be cleaned after each use.
