Time To Get Your Crayons Out

If you enjoy writing and aren't afraid to publicly put pen to paper then there's an exciting opportunity that may just be for you...

Head on over to The New Korea Files, where you're invited to submit pieces for a brand new book of "original English-language writing by blogging expatriates living in Korea". I'll be typing out my own piece this month and I encourage you to do the same.

Here's the info:


Submissions will be accepted from English-language writers who currently live in Korea and blog about their experiences.


We are looking for short essays, creative non-fiction, poetry pieces, art and lists that center around the theme Beyond Bulgogi.

Submissions should be emailed to with the subject line “BB Article Submission” or “BB Submission, other” by July 1st. Submissions must be attached as a Word .doc/.docx, .txt, .or rtf file. Any submissions in other formats will not be considered. Please indicate how you wish your name to appear if your piece is selected for inclusion.

The New Korea Files assumes only first-publication rights to selected pieces, to include printing in South Korea and in an online edition via online retailers. All other rights, including subsequent publication, are retained by the author.

Please be aware that TNKF will exercise editorial control over submissions.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but if a submission is accepted by other publications, it must be withdrawn from The New Korea Files. Please contact TNKF via email immediately if a submission is accepted by another publication. Authors will be notified in July if their pieces have been chosen for inclusion / returned for rewrite / rejected for inclusion.

Articles: Works of up to 3,000 words will be considered, although we prefer shorter. Authors may submit any number of pieces for consideration.

Poetry, Art, etc.: Any number of pieces will be accepted for submission.

Head on over to their website for more details and also the chance to submit pieces to their "The Kindness of Strangers" category.
