Oh right... just realized you may not have seen a copy of my paper haha Here is the first one, from Spring 2012. And here is the second, from Summer 2012.
It was the Global Link where you read about Portuguese.
At the Global Link we accept any variety piece that you feel comfortable and enjoy writing about! I especially like articles related to the "Global" theme as well.
So, if you do write a "Dutch crash course" that would fit right in.
If you do decide to write a European news piece, understand that the next issue will be released Winter 2013, so we don't really want old news. However if you comment on politics or any social issue that would probably stand the test of time.
I heard you were interested in writing for the AT. Well, I run an independent newsletter that gets distributed to all the major social groups as well as posted in public (the internet). If you are interested in giving writing a shot, let me know!
