writers & writing submissions

Every episode of The France Project includes interviews and discussions, as well as stories and articles written about France.

If you’re a writer, I may be interested in including your work on the show! All work needs to have some sort of reference to France. It can be fiction, non-fiction or memoir, essays, short stories, articles or excerpts from longer works.

Whether you’re an established, published author or a new writer, I am interested in reading your work. 

Upcoming themes are listed below, but this is just a general indication. If your work doesn’t fall into any of these categories, don’t worry, send it anyway! I want to read it!

Send your pitch – a paragraph or two describing yourself and the piece you have in mind – to:

katia AT thefranceproject DOT com

You can hear how a narrative piece was woven into a theme in episode one, where author and travel writer Ann Mah shared a beautiful piece she wrote for the show (see Part 2: story time).

The France Project is an entirely free endeavour, therefore you will not be paid for your submissions. Except in compliments and credits and links and all that other fun stuff!

Note: Judging the suitability of pieces is at my discretion. Accepted work will then be woven into themed episodes.

Upcoming themes (ever evolving list):

  • lost in translation (language)
  • it’s the journey… (transport stories)
