We are looking for anything and everything travel related! The Travel Series is a collection of short stories that have to do with someone’s travel adventures. We are looking for a real-life story or collection of stories (a piece of writing depicting real-life events) that talks about an individual’s experience in any place they wouldn’t consider their home, whether inside or outside of the country they live in. Most people have had the opportunity to travel to a different city/country. We want to start a travel series to engage people all around the world on the common ground of travel and share their passion for other cultures, food, sightseeing, etc.
Launch date: March 01, 2020*
* The Travel series will run from March 1st, 2020 to March 31st, 2020
