A Reminder about the @Writersabroad Anthology 2015

Just a little reminder. If you are, or have been at any time, an ex-pat (i.e. living away from your country of origin), and on top of that you are a writer…you still have more than three weeks to submit a short story or a poem for the Writers Abroad Anthology 2015.

Writers Abroad is an online community of ex-pat writers. We regularly publish anthologies that include not only our own work but also that of other ex-pat writers. This year’s anthology will be published in the autumn.

You can find all the details on our submissions page – click here. This includes the call for submissions that explains more about the theme and sets out the rules. Please read the rules carefully; submissions that don’t comply will be rejected.

When you are ready to submit, just click on the relevant button, Submit Fiction or Submit Poetry. This takes you to the Submittable website where you can securely upload your story or poem.

The closing date is 15th June 2015.

Good luck!

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.

  1. Hi Vanessa, thought I’d drop in and have a look at your blog. It’s great to see that another anothology is being put together this year, and hoping my entry will be successful again. Best wishes, Susan. 🙂


    1. Hi Susan, thanks for stopping by. The WA call for submissions ends tomorrow. We are looking at all the submissions as they come in and we will contact successful authors within two weeks of that date. All the best, Vanessa.


  2. Don’t think Wales counts as being away from home, even if I can’t speak their language. Maybe next year I’ll be an ex-pat living in Idaho, USA. (If this is an annual event.)


    1. Don’t think Wales quite counts, Roland! But you’ll certainly be eligible once you have moved to the US. Normally, our anthologies are annual events, but we took a year out last year for various reasons. So it’s not yet clear if we will publish one in 2016. But watch this space. 🙂
