The online writing community for ex-pats that I belong to, Writers Abroad, published the first issue of its new literary magazine on 1st September. It’s packed full of interesting stuff and it’s absolutely free.
Writers Abroad was founded almost five years ago by Jo Lamb, who lives in Italy and writes under the pen name Louise Charles. We have 20 members from all points of the compass including Wales, Bangladesh, Japan and Australia.
What unites us is that we are expats and we all write in English, although we don’t all have British nationality. Members include a number of non-Brits who fill me with admiration for their ability to write fluently and lyrically in a language that is not their mother tongue.
Our magazine is available online and it’s absolutely free. Just click on the image above or on this link. You can either read it online or download a PDF to your PC or tablet.
In the first issue, contributions by Writers Abroad members include:
- Short stories and flash fiction pieces (500 words or less);
- Non-fiction pieces;
- An interview with best-selling, award-winning author Amanda Hodgkinson of 22 Britannia Road and Spilt Milk fame, herself an expat living in SW France;
- Photographs of some of the exotic places our members live in;
- Interviews with members about their chosen homes abroad;
- Book reviews;
- A spotlight slot featuring our founder, Jo Lamb.
And don’t forget to tell us what you think and give us your ideas for future editions, of which there will be two/three per year. There’s a link to a feedback form in the magazine – and, unlike some, it really does only take a couple of minutes to fill in.
