CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS


The Places We've Been: Field Reports from Travelers Under 35 is looking for nonfiction narratives that challenge conventional tourism. Our summary line goes as such:

From West Africa to Vietnam, Tokyo to Paris, the book's focus is to show the distinctive niche of travel experiences that defines our wide peer group, and how we've learned to engage the global community of an increasingly small world.
