An America expatriate is searching for contributions to her new novel from interesting expat women in East Asia.
Shannon Young, who lives in Hong Kong, is currently compiling an anthology of writings from women who are currently living, or have lived in the past, in any East Asia countries. Her collection aims to provide first-hand insights into the real expat experience in modern East Asia and share the stories of women who have experienced life abroad.
Contributions are welcome from expats who have experience of life in South Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, or any other Asean countries. The author is specifically looking for creative, non-fiction submissions that describe your experiences of living in East Asia as an expatriate. In order to be published, your contribution will need to offer real-life stories that feature a strong personal narrative; the whole idea of the compilation is to offer potential expats real insights into what life is really like in the country in which you live.
The book is planned for publication in 2014. All contributing writers will receive two copies of the published anthology as well as a percentage of the royalties, which will be determined by the final number of contributors.
If you’re interested in submitting your story, please send your submission together with a brief author profile to email@example.com. Contributions should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length and should be in Microsoft Word, .doc or .docx format, and in a standard font. The deadline for submissions is March 31.
