Dear Crossroads reader,

Call for contributors
Crossroads warmly accepts new writers! Our feature articles aim at informing the international community living in and around Maastricht about current topics and issues. Articles can cover a wide variety of subjects, such as the work of local international organisations and academic institutes, cultural aspects of life in South-Limburg, or publications, websites and social clubs which can be of interest for foreign nationals.
Photo submissions for the Through the lens category are also welcome. Crossroads offers a small compensation for articles and photographs. (Ideal for students!)

About the editor
My name is Sueli Brodin and I have been working for the European Journalism Centre in Maastricht since 1997, first as a project assistant and later as a free-lance writer and editor. I have been contributing to Crossroads since its very first issue in December 2001. I was born in Brazil and raised in Pakistan , Japan and France . After completing a BA in English, I spent a year abroad in the United States . Then I met my Dutch husband in Israel and finally seem to have settled down in these small and cosy low lands where I have been living for the past fourteen years…
