Appalbarry Fund Drive is creating an income from writing, and a move to France.

$0
per month
We’re at what is nominally considered retirement age, and have pretty much concluded that North Vancouver is not where we want to be. Or North America for that matter.

After a lot of searching we seem to have decided on Normandy.

We will obviously be blogging and writing about this move, with a hope of some day turning that into a book.  Beyond that though this project is a jumping off place into full-time writing and a more relaxed lifestyle.

Much more about this move can be found at our blog: 
Échapper de North Vancouver
Stumbling towards Normandy

Contributions to our Patreon account will help to finance our move, as well as beginning to build a steady retirement income to supplement pensions.

Bio: Barry has been writing and editing more or less constantly since childhood, sometimes in a professional capacity, sometimes for pleasure.

Barry is primarily known for his work over twenty years in the non-profit sector. During that time he worked primarily (but not exclusively) with Arts and Media organizations as a volunteer, Board Member, Staff, and in various consulting capacities. During those years he wrote for and edited publications for non-profit broadcasters, web sites for arts groups, and training materials for clients and from time to time was published in various newspapers and magazines.
2017 marked a focused return to writing as a primary activity.

Contact Barry at [email protected] or 778-848-5586.

A full resume can be found at LinkedIn. You can also follow him on Twitter, a tool more recreational than professional.
You can write Barry at 832 Hendecourt Rd, North Vancouver BC V7K2Y2 Canada.
