SWECal Magazine is an online magazine devoted to everything Swedish in Southern California, particularly the Los Angeles area.
SWECal Magazine also aims to tell stories about this exciting, intriguing, impossible-to-pin-down city and about the people who call it their home. For now, most of the content is in Swedish, but we certainly hope to do better in the future. You will find a few articles in English under the “English” heading.
SWECal is published by Ingegerd (or Ingrid) Landstrom, a Swedish freelance writer living in the Los Angeles area. Together with her Angeleno husband and their three kids she moved here from Sweden some eight years ago. She has found the sunshine and the people to be quite addicting.
Ingegerd has a background in research, more specifically the fascinating field of Human Geography, and she holds her PhD from Uppsala University in Sweden.
For her freelance writing, Ingegerd is interested in everything related to environment and sustainability, politics, literature and culture. She enjoys writing profiles about all sorts of interesting folks and there’s a special place in her heart for urban gardening.
