PRESS RELEASE: The Chronicle in Newcastle upon Tyne is keen to hear from ex-pats who would like to be featured in a new weekly Geordies Abroad column.

The paper, and its website www.chroniclelive.co.uk, is looking for people all over the world who have emigrated or who are living temporarily in another country and may be writing a blog about their experiences.

Communities editor Lesley Oldfield said: "We want to give our readers a taste of life in different countries and see what experiences ex-pats are having.

"We are asking for permission to use blog posts, including a picture, as part of a column featuring different people in different parts of the world each week.

"Or contributors can email us something special (350 words plus a pic of the author) if they prefer. It could be a piece about emigrating, how life has changed and what you do or don't miss. It could just be whatever you happen to be writing about on your blog at the time, or in an interesting post from the past.

"Obviously, we want to feature people from our patch, which is Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Wearside, Northumberland and the north end of County Durham for those who haven't seen the Chronicle in a while!"

"I'm afraid we can't pay for submissions, but would be happy to include the blog address if wished."

Please email Catherine Arthur, who is co-ordinating the column, if you are interested in taking part. Her address is [email protected]
