Good morning dear expat ladies,

We had our first online meeting with Expat Support, a virtual group that meets regularly to discuss the less rosy topics linked to life abroad. We thank Barbaraexpat, who created and manages the group, and who will let us know asap which amongst the many topics chosen will be discussed next. The discussion so far has been in Italian, but if there is interest from women from other language groups, we are considering an interpreting service. Stay tuned. And write us if you want to be part of the group.
POWERFUL PROSE WITH PAOLAEXPAT
Paolaexpat’s travel writing course is going great guns. The six participants have all completed the reading and critiquing assignments, and have drafted their own travel articles, covering destinations as far afield as Honduras, India, Italy, Egypt and Argentina. With over two weeks left to go, four are almost ready to submit their work to competitions. We will keep you posted as to their progress next month!
Our virtual library of books for expats and to get to know new cultures is going great! We have added a new category: Children and young adults, where you can find books on a variety of topics linked to take our young men and women abroad. Please don’t hesitate to send us your favourite titles.
