The typical freelance writing process involves coming up with an idea and then querying a magazine, ezine or other publication for a one-time working relationship. Sometimes, as you get to know an editor, you establish a rapport that leads to multiple writing assignments. As a freelancer, those are the gigs I like best – the [...]

Why We Travel
By

Years ago, I was on a press trip in Africa. As we were bumping along through the savannah, one of my fellow journalists was flipping through a stack of magazines he had brought along for what I guess he considered dull moments. He could have been on a plane, he could have been in his [...]

The first time I went to Greece was in 1997. I had decided to see a bit of Europe after spending some months on the island of Ibiza. As things were, I had picked up a German copy of Henry Miller’s “The Colossus of Maroussi” a book that I still keep albeit in a rather [...]

My name is Nancy Brown and I have a confession to make: I sleep around a lot. Now don’t take that wrong. I’m a lodging editor. I review two properties a week and I’m paid to sleep in other people’s beds. While this may sound like an ideal job, the type of travel writing I [...]
