I have recently become involved as an editor of digital magazine Wicked World, a new digital travel magazine and website that tries to challenge modern ‘definitions’ of what ‘travel writing’ is supposed to be.
In fact, Wicked World exists to promote the kind of travel related writing that wouldn’t normally find an outlet in more mainstream publications. We’re not here to sell expensive guided tours, round the world tickets or travel insurance. We are here to provide a showcase for honest, alternative and irreverent writing, with a particular emphasis on internationally oriented underground culture.
In the future, we are planning to provide a syndication service for travel related articles, and to experiment with publishing the kind of eBooks that wouldn’t normally find an outlet through more mainstream publishers.
If you would like to get involved in Wicked World, or would simply like to know more, then send me an email to marco(at)wickedworld.net
