My world seems to revolve around anthologies recently. I’ve been caught up in preparations for the launch of Fermanagh Writers’ first collection, Tuesdays At Charlie’s, for the past couple weeks and now I’m about to embark on helping to prepare Writers Abroad’s third anthology, Foreign Encounters.
Writers Abroad has opened submissions for Foreign Encounters. We want to hear from ex-pats or former ex-pats about the encounters they’ve had away from their home shores – with humans or animals. Author Julia Gregson will write the book’s forward and all proceeds will go to Books Abroad. For more information about our submissions call visit Writers Abroad’s website.
I enjoyed writing stories for last year’s book, Foreign Flavours, and also reading all the other submissions. I already have an idea for a story and I’m looking forward to this year’s book. But first I have to pitch in to make Tuesdays At Charlie’s launch a fun night then on to Foreign Encounters.
