About Me


My name is Millie Burns and I have lived in Hanoi for two years after I moved here to pursue a career in ESL teaching and journalism. I have been a successful ESL teacher for this time and have recently started freelance journalism with Word Magazine Vietnam. I have created this blog as a way for me to stay creative, improve my writing, and have a place for my thoughts and all that other stuff that hopefully, some people will enjoy!

Want to write for me? A collaboration you say?

I'm always down for guest posts. If you want to write something for me that you think fits with the general content of this page, let me know and I will be happy to hear you out.

Want to collaborate? Write something together? How about an art piece, story, or an ongoing project? Feel free to contact me by email at any time with your detailed idea, and we'll have a talk about it!
