One Swedish Magazine in the Mail

10


10 per unit

I have a couple of Swedish magazine subscriptions. It's interesting reading, but things tend to pile up (though it's much easier to read print than digital editions so NOPE). Rather than throwing them immediately in the recycling, I'd like to pass them on to someone who wants the reading practice in Swedish. Magazines I usually have on hand are:

1. Språktidningen (language and linguistics)
2. Historiskan (feminist history)
3. Situation Stockholm (homelessness awareness/support)

For 10 simbi I'll send one of these to you in the mail. Feel free to indicate which one you'd prefer, but otherwise it's a random grab. For an extra 5 simbi I'll buy a new magazine JUST FOR YOU on a topic not listed here.

Or maybe you're into collage or decoupage and don't care about Swedish specifically. I'm not judging. There's plenty of cool art and photography to be had in these.

Training & Qualifications


I live in Sweden and have access to Swedish magazines and a post office. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to put something in an envelope, address it, and stick it in the mail. I also have good taste in magazines.

Availability & Preferences


I tend to mail things on the weekend but send me a message on Simbi any time.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Katherine did an incredible reading for me. More than they could have known while doing it because I gave so little context before the reading was per...formed! I would highly recommend their services and can't wait to have more done for me in the future. show more

It was a pleasure to work with Katherine. It's not often that I meet other experienced meditators on a similar path. I find her reasonability, flexi...bility, and dedication to her work refreshing. If you have a chance to cooperate with her, do so with confidence because it will be worth your time.show more

About Katherine Koba

Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping and educating others. In my work life, I'm a professional Swedish -> English translator. I work with corporate documents: everything fr...om annual and interim reports to internal memos to press releases. I was a freelance copyeditor and ESL tutor before that. Before that I spent two years teaching English at cram schools in South Korea, and before THAT I was a cave tour guide. In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and read a lot. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!show more
