Foreign Encounters," the third annual anthology of short stories and poetry published by Writers Abroad, was formally 'launched' at the Parisot Mediatheque. About 20 people attended to hear about Writers Abroad, the publishing of this year's anthology, and listen to some short readings from the book.
Life on La Lune', spoke about Writers Abroad which is a virtual community of writers from all over the world who meet in cyberspace to support and critique each other's writing. Of 231 submissions, 95 were chosen for this year's anthology. Mine was one of those! All the work of gathering submissions, choosing, editing and publishing was done online. The anthology can be purchased here at Lulu in dollars, pounds or euros. Any profit made from sales of the book go to Books Abroad, a UK based charity that provides recycled books for school children in developing countries.
Foreign Encounters." I'd say the folks liked what they heard! Thanks for the Parisot Library for hosting this fun event.
