work with me

Interested in working together?

A Thing For Wor(l)ds is a travel blog that fuses language and life—right now, that’s expat life in Spain. If you’re a fellow traveler, food tour company, tourism board, travel site, or dictionary seller (anyone? anyone?), I’d love to hear from you and potentially partner up.

Freelance Writing

In addition to maintaining this blog in tip-top shape, and corralling toddlers all day with the guise of “teaching English,” I also do freelance writing and translation work (Spanish to English, occasionally English to Spanish).

If you are interested in having me write for your website, blog, or print publication, please email me at athingforwords (at) gmail (dot) com to discuss details and inquire about my rates. I write on a range of topics, from language and travel to my favorite places to sip tea in Barcelona.

I’m currently a contributor to FluentU, Hipmunk, and Study International. Why not add your endeavor to that list?

For a look at where my work has popped up, other than this blog and the sites above, here are some handy links:
