According to Lonely Planet author and editor Don George
‘every traveller has some unforgettable food story – a larger-than-life feast, a mind-bending immersion in a rural market, the homemade, heart-opening treat shared by a stranger on a claptrap train, an adventure on the trail of an edible exotic. In all these tales, food is an agent of transformation, taking travellers to a deeper and more lasting understanding of and connection with a people, a place and a culture. And if they’re really lucky, it tastes good too.’
And with that in mind, he is looking for submissions for a new Lonely Planet anthology called A Moveable Feast: Life-Changing Food Encounters Around the World.
So if you’ve got an original, unpublished (true) tale of travel and food, why not email it to Don George at email@example.com with Food Anthology in the subject line.
Length is from 1,000 to 3,000 words.
Deadline is April 19.
All submissions are on speculation.
A Moveable Feast will be published this fall.
