The Frog in the Media

Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 17.04.25

Interviews and articles from this blog have been published in many national and regional Norwegian newspapers, but also in German, French and Dutch papers and magazines. Since October 2014 I write a monthly chronicle in the Norwegian daily newspaper VG. I have previously been hired to write  in Widerøe’s in-flight magazine, as well other tourist agencies such as Visit Norway . An eclectic crowd reads and refers to and talks about this blog, from Norwegian Embassies (surprisingly in Asia, see here) to finance newspapers, Norwegian comedians (Tusvik og Tønne podcast 163), radio programmes (NRK Salongen – Sanna Sarromaa…) and many high schools with intercultural programmes as well as language teachers. I also hold speeches in universities, companies and other venues such as the National Library of Norway on inter-cultural issues and integration in Norway; and am regularly invited by radios (NRK P2 – EKKO) or newspapers (Dagens Næringsliv, SAS etc.) to share my views on debate themes.

If you want to hire me to write content for your platform, do public speaking on a theme related to Norway please contact me at Lorelou Desjardins: froginthefjord(at)gmail(dot)com.
