@Writersabroad’s Literary Magazine 2nd Issue Published Today!

WA Mag 2


Looking for something good to read? Look no further. The second issue of Writers Abroad’s literary magazine hits the virtual newsstands today. You can read it FREE (see below) and sign up for advance warning of future issues here.

Writers Abroad is an online community for ex-pat writers, to which I belong. We have been going for more than five years and count impressive and very successful writers in our line-up. We published the first issue of our magazine in September 2014 and have been delighted with its reception.

Issue 2 is a pot-pourri of fiction, poetry, non-fiction articles and author interviews on the theme of spring and new beginnings. The contributions are written by our members. But you don’t have to be an ex-pat to enjoy them.

Among the highlights:

  • Short and longer short stories
  • Poetry
  • Non-fiction articles inspired by living abroad
  • Recipes
  • Images of foreign places
  • Interview with author and poet Sue Guiney, who is American but lives in London and also spends time in Cambodia
  • Members’ views of their adopted homelands
  • Book reviews

You can read the Writers Abroad magazine online here.

Or you can download a PDF version here.

And you can sign up to subscribe to future issues of the magazine absolutely free with no commitment, here.

Writers Abroad’s 2015 Anthology

And, if that weren’t enough, there’s news in the magazine of our 5th anthology, for which we will be putting out a call for submissions shortly.

Entitled ‘Kaleidoscope’, the anthology takes ‘light’ as its theme since 2015 is International Year of Light. We will seek submissions of short stories and poetry from ex-pat writers. All proceeds will go to our chosen charity Room to Read.

If you are an ex-pat writer and would like to receive a copy of the call for submissions, you can sign up in advance here.


We hope you enjoy the varied range of content in this issue of our magazine and we are always delighted to receive your comments and feedback. The magazine contains a link to a very short feedback form for this purpose.

P.S. This coming Friday’s (6th March) author slot on my blog will be an interview with Jo Lamb (aka Louise Charles), who founded Writers Abroad. She is a talented author and an organiser par excellence! Stay tuned.

We moved to an 18th-century farmhouse in SW France in 1997. I'm fascinated by French history, rural traditions and customs. I also write historical novels and short stories.
