Editor's guide: Expat voices in Portugal
A guide to our Expat voices section with information on how you can be published!
Our Expat Voices series gives the international community a chance to share their perspectives on life in Portugal. We now have six different Expat Voices questionnaire categories: Expat Voices, Expat Writer, Expat Entrepreneur, Expat Artist, Student Voices, and Expat Story. Want to be published? Fill one out!
Our original Expat Voices questionnaire invites you to share your initial experience of living in Portugal. We ask about shopping, food, language, culture and what you like most and least about living in Portugal. Read, for example, Wanda Dabrowski's account of settling in after her family's big move from the U.K. to the Minho region of Portugal.
Our Expat Entrepreneurs questionnaire invites entrepreneurs in Portugal to share their experiences of setting up and running their businesses abroad. Check out our article where entrepreneur Sam Milner talks about running an Internet business from Portugal--a country where this is not a typical means of gaining income. 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 Portugal.
Expat Writer questionnaires are for published journalists and authors (online and print) with established success as writers in Portugal. 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 Portugal 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 Portugal. Share your thoughts!
