Jo Linsdell: Italian For Tourists and Promo Day for Writers!
RYCJ of OEBooks posted a fabulous interview with Jo Linsdell the author of Italian For Tourists and the organizer of Promo Day for writers.
Jo Linsdell visited Italy a few years ago and never left. (Reminds me of my co-blogger, DeLynne, a Texan transplanted in Australia who just happens to speak and teach Italian.) After learning to speak Italian, Jo wrote an user-friendly phrasebook of basics for tourists. Sounds like the perfect book for me!
Jo is also the organizer of Promo Day which is a free annual online event for writers. The next Promo Day will be held this Saturday May 15. The website and information regarding the workshops/forums available are listed in the interview.
I loved reading about Jo's journey towards writing and publishing Italian For Tourists and her insights on traveling and communicating in Italy. If you plan to vacation in Italy or are a writer interested in Promo Day, check out the the interview at OEBooks for more information.
