ONLINE writing group Writers Abroad have launched their new anthology Foreign Encounter. Foreign Encounters is the third anthology published by Writers Abroad, an online group of expat writers. All the contributors are, or have been, expats living in places around the globe. Author Julia Gregson, a former ex-pat whose bestselling novel East of the Sun won the Prince Maurice Prize for romantic fiction, has written the foreword. Jan Edwards from mallorca, writing under the name Janice Dunn, also has a short story included. Following a call for submissions, Writers Abroad received 231 contributions of which they selected 95 for the anthology. They include 16 poems, 38 short stories and 41 non-fiction articles. Since Writers Abroad is a virtual writers’ group, all the work to produce Foreign Encounters has been done online. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Books Abroad, a charity which co-ordinates the donation of free books for schools throughout the world, believing that education is a crucial aspect of human progress. The charity celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and has supplied over 1,600 schools with desperately-needed books.
