e-Marginalia: Travel Beyond the Margin

Does this sound familiar?

You return from vacation and the first thing you do is call or email your best friend. You are brimming with exciting news, practically bursting to give a full report on the adventure you just enjoyed. And for a couple of days or weeks, you become the authority on diving in Turks & Caicos, skiing in the Alps, wine tasting in Tuscany or trekking in Nepal.

People ask you questions, drool over your photographs, beg you for recommendations on where to stay or eat or shop or hike… And it’s fun.

You enjoy being able to share travel experiences with your friends, and they love getting the inside scoop. And let’s face it, you love to prolong your vacation “high” by reliving it in stories, anecdotes, photographs and recommendations.

Well what if you could get published for doing it? What if millions of people around the world could have the opportunity to share in your experience?

e-Margaux.com just launched e-Marginalia, a quarterly 'zine for you to share your travel adventures. You are invited to submit compelling chronicles from your adventure travels, and the best original stories and photographs will be published. At the end of each quarter


the authors of the three most popular stories are rewarded with cash prizes to celebrate their well-earned fame. Fame and fortune (albeit a rather small fortune) on e-Margaux.com!

And why not? The appetite for intriguing, well-written (and well photographed) travel stories is virtually insatiable. e-Margaux site visitors want adventure. They want authentic. They want relevant. They want eccentric and quirky and funny. Most of all, e-Margaux.com attracts visitors who yearn for REAL experiences from REAL people.

You up to the challenge? The storytellers featured at http://www.e-marginalia.com are! e-Marginalia showcases stories from a diverse group of travelers. Adventurers, sybarites, sophisticates and romantics. Wanderers all — wayward or cerebral, focused or quixotic — these travelers have returned with stories to enrapture and transport us. At least until we sally forth on our own adventures.
