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So if you’ve got an original, unpublished (true) tale of travel and food, why not email it to Don George at [email protected] with Food Anthology in the subject line.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.
To get an idea of the type of writing they are looking for, check out this Lonely Planet anthologies – The Kindness of Strangers, By the Seat of My Pants, and Tales from Nowhere .
A Moveable Feast will be published this fall.
