We share a deep fascination of culture; of life in other countries; of our diversity of beliefs, customs, and attitudes; of popular culture—music, movies, and sports . . . simply a fascination for what makes us tick.

We welcome submissions—non-fiction, creative non-fiction, and realistic fiction—about time spent on the other side of the world, about growing up in your own neighborhood . . . or anywhere in between.

Suggestions include:

  • visiting/moving to/living in a foreign country
  • coming of age stories/growing up in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s
  • triumph over adversity
  • culture shock
  • memorable characters and experiences you have encountered in your travels, your work, or in your neighborhood or family
  • the ups and downs of being famous, almost famous … or not famous at all (as a musician, actor, e.g.)
  • going against the grain of your peers or family and their “accepted” tastes vs. yours (music, fashion, etc.)
  • how ideals and perspectives change between generations and how our own ideals and perspectives can change throughout our lives
