If you're an ex-pat writer, here's your chance to get your short story, poem or non-fiction piece published.
Writers Abroad are looking for submissions for their third anthology, 'Foreign Encounters'.
Submissions are sought on the general theme of relationships around the world. The
anthology will be print published and later available as an e-book. Your short story, non-fiction
piece or poem can encompass people, animals and places. An encounter or
alliance, a connection or kinship, love or liaison written from an
ex-pat view point.
