Notes from the underground (6)

As online community manager for citybooks, I get to do the fun part of the work. Not only do I get to spend a lot of time browsing Facebook, I also get to update our European partners and fans on the latest additions to our website, share citybooks related events throughout Europe, and connect with our writers, photographers, and policy makers working hard on making the residencies a success.

Although we’re still in an early phase of building our European citybooks community, I am confident that the relationships we’re currently building through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn will form the foundation of a larger European network of creative folk and cities. It thus pleases me to see that Dutch writer Abdelkader Benali is not shy in sharing his experiences first in Skopje and now in Sheffield with his many fans on Facebook and Twitter. British peanut butter, it turns out, is not too disgusting once you get used to it.

Curious? Join the conversation via Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. For questions, you can email me personally via (or via Twitter: @annadenise).
