Among Worlds is the publication that goes directly to the heart issues many adult Third Culture Kids (ATCKs) face: relationships, grief, transitions, home, values and many more.
Throughout the year, adult third culture kids find a lifeline that addresses their needs in the pages of our publication—Among Worlds.
Among Worlds fills a real need by addressing issues that are relevant to adult TCKs today and it “reunites” them with others of similar experience. Among Worlds will also help parents, educators and others to better understand the needs and experiences of the TCKs whose lives they are shaping daily.
Each edition tackles a specific issue that is relevant to adult TCKs in a head-on approach that will encourage and empower you as you travel through life.
Among Worlds is available online through your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. It’s a more conducive format for TCKs and Global Nomads!
Redesigned in a blog format, now enjoy the entirety of the fantastic submissions from amazing guest contributors. Enjoy more frequent uploads instead of waiting for an upcoming issue! The Among Worlds website is updated typically weekly with new content.

“My sincere hope is that as TCKs we’ll do the work to become bridge builders in a world that is aligning more and more with our experience. What a lost opportunity it would be not to make the most of the fact that in many ways we’re a preview of coming attractions!”"- Chris O'Shaughnessy - September 2020 - Releasing: Living Fully & Letting Go
