Hello, Hola, Bonjour, Ciao!
In the spirit of sisterhood and collective upliftment, I am writing to share some travel media related information that recently came my way. I publish a newsletter approximately 3-4 times per year with the goal of informing the African American travel media community about upcoming events, news, calls for submission, residencies and updates on my travel work. Here’s hoping your find something interesting or useful within.
If you would like to be on the mailing list to receive the newsletter in the future, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awakening the global heart, Elaine Lee
