There are a lot of immigrant language writers residing in the Nordic countries, who have arrived here for various reasons. Some have left their home countries for political reasons or war, others have come to the North for love, or a number of other reasons. They all struggle to be able to work as professional writers in their new home countries, and they all find different methods for managing.
