The online ex-pat writers’ group, Writers Abroad, of which I’m a member, will be publishing its fourth anthology this year, with the working title of Far Flung and Foreign. We are looking for other ex-pat (or former ex-pat) writers to contribute. Here are the details from our Call for Submissions:
“We are seeking submissions of short stories, flash fiction, non-fiction pieces and poetry on the theme of foreign places, which must be firmly grounded in a particular place such as a country, area, town, village or building. The anthology will be print published and later available as an e-book.
This year Writers Abroad will be donating all profits made to the charity: Book Aid International. Book Aid International increases access to books and supports literacy, education and development in sub-Saharan Africa. They provided 543,280 new books to over 2,000 libraries last year alone and have sent more than 30 million books to partner libraries since 1954.
Author Amanda Hodgkinson will be writing the foreword. Amanda currently lives in south west France with her family. Her debut novel, 22 Britannia Road, was released in April 2011.
“An affecting story, extremely well told” (The Times)
“Riveting, luminous” (New York Times Book Review)
“Convincing and touchingly portrayed” (Independent on Sunday)
