Foreign Encounters - Writers Abroad

Writers Abroad has published their third Anthology entitled "Foreign Encounters" - a collection of stories, non-fiction and poems. All proceeds from the sale of Foreign Encounters will be donated to Books Abroad, an organization that helps to educate children worldwide by sending free school books that are carefully chosen to match the need of each school.

About the book: 
Encounters can be a chance meeting, a planned get-together or even a confrontation. This collection of stories, non-fiction and poems features a variety of foreign encounters: with family, friends, lovers, animals, cultures, or just with one's own prejudices and preconceptions.

About Writers Abroad
Writers Abroad is a community for Expat writers. The group was formed to help overcome the potential isolation and difficulties that Expat writers may face in their adopted country. Therefore the aim of the group is to provide mutual support via feedback, critiques and editing to enable members to develop their writing skills with a view to further publication including competitions.

Foreign Encounters
305 pages, paperback


  1. I'm really pleased to have one of my stories about life in Viet Nam published in this anthology, which is jam-packed with great non-fiction, fiction and poetry. Books Abroad is a worthwhile charity. I'm still reading through all the other contributions.

  2. I love your Viet Nam story Chris. I may read it at our Foreign Encounters book launch in Dhaka, Bangladesh next week! Paola (from Writers Abroad and Dhaka)
