EXPERIMENTS IN TRAVEL AND TELLING


Away is a space for writing about travel that challenges typical tellings, whether through the content of the pieces, the way they’re told, the voices telling them, or the discoveries travelers make in the process.

Away recognizes that people ‘travel’ for lots of different reasons—that travel can include emigration, exile, and the need for refuge as well as grand tours, studies away, and beach vacations. We’re looking for work that comprehends that one person’s “elsewhere” is another person’s “home.” We’re seeking work that grapples with its partiality–both that travelers are limited and enabled by their particular place in the world and that any account of lived experience will finally incomplete. In this way, the work in Away experiments in and with those uncertain spaces.
