collaboration opportunity // i want your photos + words about travel

"Souvenirs, momentos and photographs are physical memories to trips gone by. With limited space in our suitcases, choosing what to bring home and for who is much more an object—it’s a conscious choice, an object in which our memories live on. A vintage pin or a chipped dish, a handmade backpack or a poster—an otherwise commonplace momento means the world to a specific traveler. 

In Atlas Addict Quarterly’s first issue, we examine the ways + means of the things we carry—where, what and why we buy the things we do, the importance of travel journals + photographs, and the heaviness + lightness of memories—through beautiful images and honest words. We’d love it if you joined us. "

As some of you may or may not know, i'm the managing editor of a site called Atlas Addict, which is all about looking at travel through beautiful images and honest words. For the last couple of months, my friends Alysha, Kate and I have been working to expand the site and start putting out a quarterly publication--first online, and hopefully, later in print. It's a lot of slow, hard work (further complicated by the fact that Alysha and I have both moved cross-country and started new jobs this summer), but I'm excited to say we're now looking for submissions + collaborators! 

We are looking for beautiful photography, travel guides, essays, travel journals (if you keep a sketchbook or diary while traveling, please hit me up ASAP), as well as people who'd be interested in writing a short piece or two for our "snapshots" section. 

We are also always looking for either guest or regular contributors for our website + team members--if you love travel, this is the place for you. email me, or find us on twitter @atlas_addict 

(thanks for reading, friends! hope to hear from some of you!)
