First Glimpse Article Posted

5 02 2011

Some you may remember a post I made several months ago about becoming an international correspondent for an online magazine called Glimpse. For the last six months, I’ve been writing, editing, and revising essays for publication on their website.

Well, the day has come.  My first article, In the Shadow of Table Mountain, has “gone live” (do they say that?).  It is about my decision to leave Cape Town and move to the Eastern Cape.  They give me a twizzler for every comment, so if you leave me one on their website, I’ll give you half.

Several more articles will be published on their site in the near future.  Thanks for reading!

For those interested, this is the Mission Statement from Glimpse’s website:

Glimpse believes that independent travelers, particularly those who spend significant time abroad, have a unique and often overlooked opportunity to effect positive change around the world. This begins with bearing witness to place, people, culture, and especially the stories and struggles that might otherwise go unrecorded.

Our goal is to build a worldwide community of “Correspondents,” travelers with strong creative visions for storytelling through words and images, and to provide them with a professional platform–including stipends, community support, and one-on-one editorial training–for publishing high-profile journalistic work based on their travels abroad.
