As a favor to one of my travel writers, posting his call for submissions. This is not what I usually publish and please don’t flood me with requests.
“ROTTEN VACATIONS,” a new upcoming paperback literary travel annual, edited by John M. Edwards, Bruce Northam, and (maybe) Tony Perottet, is accepting submissions for its “second” issue. Please send your essays about bad trips (no e-mail queries, except if you have an incredible “idear”) via regular mail to: JOHN M. EDWARDS: Rotten Vacations, editor: The Archstone: 250 W. 50th St. #15L, New York, NY 10019: 212.219.8126: firstname.lastname@example.org. We prefer foreign over domestic, but USA pieces are acceptable as long as they don’t involve inconvenient car trips with crying kids. Send only your best, immaculately edited, narrative essays, along with photos (if you have any) and a 100 word bio. No deadlines and no reading fees, although a helping donation of $10-20 donation assures contributors that we will take your submission seriously, and larger donations may even land your name in print in the acknowledgments. . . .
