My French Life™ magazine celebrates 600 articles and more…

7158250691_040b12d1e1_o

Last week, a handful of My French Life™ editors and contributors gathered in Melbourne for an impromptu celebration of some exciting milestones for the magazine. 

Between wine, cheese and crackers, team members met some new faces and mingled. It was wonderful to be able to put a face to many of the names that arrive in each of our inboxes every morning.

France is opening doors…

A regular journalist with My French Life™, Alison was pleased to be able to meet the names behind some of her own favourite writers. She says that the magazine has given her the “platform and opportunity to explore, defend and be challenged in my perception of life in France”. This platform has become a launching pad for Alison, who has just been offered the opportunity to change career, and take up a job in travel writing, partly due to the fact that she is a published author on our magazine.

Alison enjoyed catching up with another regular contributor and editor, Sophie, who recently moved to Melbourne. She shares Alison’s sense of fulfilment when working with in the My French Life™ community. “To see a piece of writing you’ve had a hand in producing be published is… very exciting and satisfying!”

“I’ve always had a connection to France and French language, and have always loved writing, reading and editing,” she explains “Becoming part of the My French Life™ team was a chance to do something creative with these interests, as well as joining a community of like-minded people in a new city.”

French and francophiles alike

My French Life™ marketing intern, Claire, has been with the magazine for just one month, direct from France. She was pleased to be able to meet people who are passionate about the culture of her pays de naissance, and fellow expats linked by the ‘French thread’.

Claire is excited about the opportunities My French Life™ has opened up for her. “It gives me the possibility to be creative and use all the marketing techniques I learnt during my studies and my previous professional experiences,” she explains. “Moreover, it makes it possible for me to work in an international environment and discover the Australian culture.”

Alison, Sophie, Claire and a number of other contributors and editors gathered together to raise a glass to some exciting milestones for both the My French Life™ magazine and community.

We have published over 600 articles on our magazine MyFrenchLife.org, written by French and francophile members who live all over the world.

The My French Life™ events started in Melbourne where the French conversation group now has more than 800 members. With more than 200 events behind them Melbourne based members have a choice of  a range of eight events each month.  Additionally regular events are now being held in Paris and soon to be in other cities.

We would like to thank all of the readers, writers, editors and other team members who have helped us reach these incredible milestones. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today: a global community celebrating our shared passions for French language and culture.

Here’s to the next 600 articles!
