These past couple of weeks have been filled with reading, research, emails and a lot of writing. That may seem surprising since there hasn’t been much activity on my blog, but that’s because I’ve been busy preparing for the Families in Global Transition Conference.
It’s an annual conference on all things expat, third culture kid, global families… And this year I’m not only attending the conference, but I’m doing so with a writer’s residency, along with 3 other scholars. I was extremely fortunate to get selected as it is a fantastic opportunity and one I am very much looking forward to. In preparation for the conference and the writer’s residency, however, I find myself with a lot of ‘homework’ so I may not blog as often. But I will make sure to blog as much as I can, and I will still be reading and replying to comments, so please feel free to leave your thoughts anytime! I will also make sure to blog about the conference once it comes along…
This is my first time attending FIGT, but I have heard only wonderful things about it. If any of you are interested, make sure you check out their website for more information. This year, in addition to the usual sessions and talks, there will also be a writer’s forum open to everyone attending the conference (led by Jo Parfitt, our writing residency mentor!).
And last, but not least, if any of you happen to be attending the conference this year, please let me know so that we have a chance to meet in person while we’re there!
p.s. I am now on twitter, so feel free to connect with me there as well @DouniaB_TCK
