I have travel coming up on my calendar–Indiana to see college friends over the 4th of July, then Halifax for grad school residency in August, followed by some tourism in Nova Scotia… and after that? Maybe a trip to Oxford, Mississippi to the Southern Foodways Alliance conference in September, related to my MFA project.
I’m in a suitcase-packing mood!
While I’m traveling hither and yon, help me keep the virtual pages of True Stories Well Told stocked. Send me your travel stories. And if “how to write them” is on your mind, I know a nifty little book that might help… shameless plug. 😉 Write Your Travel Memoirs is now available on Kindle for only $4.99.
So let’s get out of town! Pack up those stories and send them my way. Essays of up to 1500 words accompanied by a photo or two will find a warm welcome here. Find additional submission guidelines here.
To get in the mood, read Mark Blondin’s essay on arriving in San Miguel de Allende–the first day of a six-year expat experience that led to writing At Home Abroad: Today’s Expats Tell Their Stories with his wife Betsy. Click the title in the image below to go to Mark’s essay on Medium.
