Travel writing, when done well, provides a special kind of delight to people who love reading. That\’s probably because all great writing transports us from our every day to places that we can hardly imagine; when the techniques of great narrative writing are applied to travel writing, we experience a double whammy of transformative goodness.
The digital travel magazine Nowhere aims for narrative that offers a â€œstrong sense of place, character or timeâ€ and concerns itself with literary travel writing. In other words, this is excellent stuff for travel readers. According its editors, â€œWe don\’t publish reviews of spas or shopping centers or â€˜Top 10 Vacation Getaways.\’ â€ Instead, Nowhere publishes long-form travelogues and journals and profiles written by some of the world\’s most engaging writers.
Begun as a website in 2009, the Brooklyn, NY-based publication evolved into a quarterly, some of which you\’ll see in their Flipboard feed. Nowhere is the latest publication to join a slate of projects that were found and funded via Kickstarter and featured on Flipboard.
