Are you a writer with experience of living abroad?

Are you looking for an accessible writing group?

Perhaps Pens Around the World would be a good match for you.

Pens Around the World is a peer group of creative writers working in English, who live, or have experienced living, in far-flung places. We believe this gives us a perspective not shared by writers without this experience.

Members of Pens Around the World support one another, for example by:

  • Giving and receiving reviews and critiques in an objective and timely manner,
  • Sharing writing opportunities and ideas,
  • Participating in the ever-changing development of our WordPress/BuddyPress website,
  • Committing to writing scheduled blogs (Bi-weekly Wisdoms) and writing prompts (Pensives),
  • Attending our once-monthly video meetings as regularly as possible

Pens Around the World is looking to welcome new members.

If you feel you might be a fit for us, and we might be a fit for you, wow us by completing our application form below!

We look forward to hearing from you!
