Are you an international student and interested in writing for the Swedish Institute?

The Swedish Institute (SI) is a public agency that promotes interest in Sweden abroad. SI seeks to establish cooperation and lasting relations with other countries through active communication as well as cultural, educational and scientific exchanges.

During early autumn of 2008 SI launched SwedenInTouch.se a new internet community for international students in Sweden. SwedenInTouch.se will be a way for students to stay in touch with each other and also get updated about what’s happening in Sweden. Users will be able to create their own account where they can blog, get invitations to Sweden related events, post photos, connect with their host university and other international students.

We are looking for international students who would like to share their experiences and communicate them by blogging on SwedenInTouch. If you are an international student who has studied or is studying in Sweden, we look forward to see you as a selected blogger on SwedenInTouch.se.

Your Blog may cover any subject related to the experience of being an international student in Sweden. We suggest writing approximately 200 words twice a week.

We are looking for people willing to participate from October 2009 to January 2010.

Participants will receive:
650 SEK in gift vouchers to be used at www.Swedenbookshop.com
A reference letter from the Swedish Institute stating your participation as an international blogger on SwedenInTouch.
