Ciao a tutte,
ritorna l'ormai tradizionale Call for Submissions di Writers Abroad, che ogni anno produce una meravigliosa antologia con scritti esclusivamente provenienti da espatriate/i o ex espatriate/i.
Molte di noi hanno già partecipato in passato, io sono stata fortunata e lo scorso anno hanno pubblicato un mio pezzo nell'antologia 2012, Foreign Encounters.
Quello che mi piace di questa iniziativa è che tutti i proventi raccolti con la vendita dell'antologia vanno a sostenere organizzazioni che si battono per l'alfabetizzazione e promuovo la lettura nel mondo. Quest'anno l'antologia aiuterà Book Aid International
Lasciatevi tentare :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

Writers Abroad Anthology 2013
Call for Submissions - Short Stories, Non-Fiction Articles and Poetry.
Organised by expat writers group - Writers Abroad

Writers Abroad will be publishing their fourth anthology, with the working title of Far Flung and Foreign

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, 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 the south west of 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)
