Stories from Expat Australians Not in the Book

We received over 170 stories from Australians around the world in response to our call in early June 2003 to "tell your story". It was an amazing and very pleasing response. Unfortunately, only 33 stories could be squeezed into our book. But the quality of all stories was extremely high, and therefore we are publishing stories which did not fit into the book on this page.

If you contributed a story to the SCG/Global Exchange Book Project 2003, and your story was not selected for inclusion in our book, and it is not yet published above but you would like it included here, please contact Jean-François Vandevyver at the SCG in Brussels. We require your explicit authorisation and also a copy of your story in Word format to enable website publication. You should also provide a title for your story and a four line biography. Stories submitted by the Project deadline of 31 July 2003 will not be automatically published on our site without explicit consent from the author concerned, as stated in the e-mail from Global Exchange sent to all contributors on 11 September 2003.
