Editor's Guide: Expat Voices in Spain
Read this brief guide to learn more about our Expat Voices section and share your thoughts on life in Spain by filling out a questionnaire.
Our Expat Voices series gives the international community a chance to share their perspectives on life in Spain. We now have four different Expat Voices questionnaires catered to artists, writers, entrepreneurs, and expats with opinion in general. Want to be published? Fill one out!
Our original Expat Voices questionnaire invites you to share your initial experience of living in Spain. We ask about shopping, food, language, culture and what you like most and least about living in Spain. Read why Singaporean Nellie Huang can’t seem to stay away from the country, or what retired British expat Michael St. John-Hall would change about siestas and noise levels in Baeza. Audrey Hill, can even comment on expat life in more than one Spanish location, like Seville, Segovia and Madrid.
The encouragement and tips offered by the entrepreneurs participating in this series makes these interviews an invaluable read for those contemplating starting a business in Spain. Emma Grenham from Kids in Barcelona talks about how setting up a business in Spain is best when catering towards an existing Spanish market. British expat entrepreneur Nadine Kazerounian tells about her image consultancy business in Spain, and that in order to gain trust among local business culture it's important to show up at events and be a networking pro.
Expat Writer questionnaires are for published journalists and authors (online and print) with established success as a writer in Spain. Read what regular blogger Jeremy Holland has to say about the vibrant street life of Barcelona and all its chaotic ways, or how Nick Snelling in Valencia advises budding writers to get involved with the internet as it allows them to go far beyond conventional publishing.
How has living abroad influenced your work as an artist? Our Expat Artist questionnaire finds out more about your life as an international artist in Spain and asks about your creative work, how you experience the local artistic community and the kinds of financial support which are available to artists working in Spain. Share your thoughts!
