[wherever]: an out of place journal is a spanking new print magazine focusing on travel writing, travel culture and the politics of travel. Planned as a three times per year publication, the magazine’s inaugural issue will be released next Thursday and will be available for purchase on its website.
Founder and Editorial Director Rawan Hadid has pulled together a mixed bag of international contributors for the NYC-based publication. And she promises to keep the focus on the personal travel essay.
Issue #1 of [wherever] has excellent city guides to Istanbul, Rome and São Paulo, along with a visit to the ever popular North Korea, book reviews, and much more for the travel lover. I’m looking forward to a print travel magazine that will eschew the endless visits to luxury resorts and “in” eateries in favor of coverage of travel the way most of us do it.
