On a recent visit to Portland, Oregon, The Conium Review’s editors James Gapinski and Uma Sankaram sat down to talk with me about Travel Tales and the current transformation it’s undergoing. To learn more about the magazine and what we’re looking for in submissions, listen to the podcast below.

As many of you know, I’ve slowed down my traveling ways over the last five months. Maybe not forever, but the days of hopping on a plane or train once every week or two are gone for now. This is something that life had been demanding of me months before I accepted it as my reality – and for various reasons, too. The most significant is that I need to root myself in one place long enough to bring some of my other writing projects to fruition.
Traveling and writing about all that I’ve seen and experienced has not only given me countless stories, a deeper understanding of others and the way they live, and moments of profound joy, it has also fueled within me a tireless pursuit of self-inquiry. So it is with the deepest gratitude that I thank you for sharing in my writing – and yes, my life.
Travel Tales is not coming to an end – it is merely being put on hold so that, like me, it too can be re-birthed in another form. Check back in mid-2012 to see it in its new incarnation.
