It started as a way for writer Hailey Colwell to tell her family about living and working in Paris. Now, after 11-plus months in the city of light, Des Mots du Monde has become a collection of stories about living among and working for the Paris upper class. It is part survival guide about homesickness and culture shock, part adventure log, and part sounding board for an angsty writer disguised as a babysitter. With stories touching on postgrad lifethe au pair experience and living in the city in the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, the blog has attracted readers from 35 different countries.

Hailey is a journalist and theatre artist from St. Paul, Minnesota. You can visit her website or find her on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. You are also welcome to send her an email.

You can find her writing on YourClassical.orgClassical MPR, 89.3 The Current’s Local Current BlogMinnesota Playlist and on the Minnesota Daily’s website.
