It’s high time for another international writing round-up. So without further ado:
Attend workshops, receive critiques, improve your skills, talk to publishing experts, meet other writers, take away tips and give yourself a creative workout. On October 27-28, WriteCon Zurich will host another writing conference in Zurich, Switzerland. The weekend will feature boot camps, masterclasses, and more.
Writer Abroad contributor Philip Graham’s new book about living in Africa, Braided Worlds, has just been published (co-authored with Alma Gottlieb). All royalties from the book are dedicated to the Being people.
The anthology Chicken Soup for the Soul has a new story call out. They are looking for stories that show how you made the best of a challenging situation. Chosen authors receive $200 and retain the copyright to their story.
For those of you looking for books by expats for expats, look no further than the appropriately named Expat Bookshop. It was founded in late 2011 by Jo Parfitt and her team at Summertime Publishing, which publishes books exclusively about living abroad.
