I’m delighted to announce that I have been awarded a 2017 Parfitt Pascoe Writing Residency Scholarship, thanks to the Families in Global Transition Organisation.

The course work has already begun! I aim to develop my writing and blogging skills, whilst being mentored by writer and publisher Jo Parfitt from Summertime Publishing. The Pascoe part of the scholarship name is in honour of the author of one of the first books I ever read on the subject of raising globally mobile children – Robin Pascoe. Both Jo and Robin have written widely on a variety of expatriate issues so it is a privilege to be studying under their names. The course will focus on how to write articles for the global market and place them with publications. In exchange, I will be attending the Families in Global Transition Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands, in March next year to cover the conference sessions and hopefully interview keynote speakers. I’m excited and a little nervous about the journey ahead! To read more about me, along with the other three extremely talented scholars who join me on this new adventure, click on this link.

Families in Global Transition (FIGT) is a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. They promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success and well-being of people. The FIGT network is made up of researchers, educators, counsellors, relocation specialists, artists, humanitarians, entrepreneurs, students and parents – all working to support and empower families in global transition.

If this sounds like you and you’d like to attend the FIGT Conference, details can be found here.

As my readers, I hope You will benefit most from my newfound skills and understandings. Thank you for supporting me on this journey.
