Published in a Most Unlikely Way
The Out Traveler is a magazine I get with my subscription to The Advocate. It’s a little on the boy-crazy side, but it’s a very good publication, with plenty of information of interest to women, and the tone is nice. They talk about places I might actually go to, and mention hotels that I might actually stay in. They don’t assume everyone is on a Conde Nast-type budget (or lack thereof).
It’s the kind of magazine I could imagine writing for, but oddly enough, a photograph is the first thing they’re ever going to publish from me. In their print magazine they have a feature called "Souvenir." It’s a page where readers are invited to send in vacation photos. A few months ago I sent a few of mine in on a whim, all from my round-the-world trip. I didn’t really expect anything to come of it, but yesterday I heard from them saying they’d like to include a Japan shot in an online slideshow starting January 8. I don’t know where exactly this will appear, but I’ll keep checking and provide a link as soon as I find it myself.
