Girl in Florence published in Chinese

Cacao Mag – Taiwan

Yay for fun news! After a pretty relaxing Christmas eating way too much food with my adopted Italian family and missing home, I got a really awesome surprise in the mail today. A short story I was asked to submit to a magazine based in Taiwan (with Scandinavian roots) was published and they sent me a copy of the magazine in print {also drawing a very cute “Merry Xmas” on the packaging nice!}. Honestly it was like Christmas morning for this girl, especially since it was in English and… Chinese! A real accomplishment especially since it really is such a beautiful magazine. Think high-resolution gorgeous photos and stories from artists and people living in those cities telling their stories. I am still pouring over the other submissions.

What is Cacao Mag? In their words :  “In every issue, we introduce a theme, a city and twelve creative people. In every issue, we invite academic and professional talents from different fields to talk about the theme. In every issue, we present beautiful viewpoints of people from creative industry, from every corner of the world.” Published in Taiwan,Sweden, China,Hong Kong and Berlin.
