Dear Travel Writing Friends,

This site lists editorial opportunities, calls for submissions, classes, travel-related websites, readings by travel writers, and news about local travel writers’ current projects. The feedback I’ve received is that it’s not only a useful calendar of upcoming events—it also helps people stay in touch and attend each others’ readings and classes, building our growing SF Bay Area community of travel writers and photographers.

Thanks to all of you for sending information; please keep it coming!LaurieMcAndishKing
